'This ground-breaking book answers recent calls for more attention to be paid to everyday heterosexuality. Drawing on interviews with three generations of families the authors illuminate the processes whereby heterosexuality is both reproduced and changed intra-generationally and inter-generationally and show how heterosexuality orders far more than merely our sexual lives. In so doing they cast new light on what is still too often treated as an 'unmarked' category.' - Professor Stevi Jackson, University of York, UK

'This is a fascinating book, which offers page after page of intriguing revelations. Highly relevant to social work's understanding of families, this book would also be invaluable to researchers and research students as an inspirational and yet 'easy-to-read' example of rigorous theorising and exemplary methodology...I have been recommending this text to friends and colleagues for some time...' - British Journal of Social Work

'...opens up a path for further research on the doing (and interweaving) of heterosexualities, gender and sexualities' - Sociologica
