Reviews

"I have read several Buffy Studies books, and this one will count among the best. One of its most appealing features is that it constitutes a general reappraisal of the series as well as a hefty appraisal of just about everything that has been published on the subject before...this book can be summed up with the phrase 'how to do (feminist) things with Buffy.'" --Georges-Claude Guilbert, Cercles, January 2017
