"This book opens up new areas and new questions for queer theory by bringing together the writings of some of the most well-known and respected writers with the work of a number of exciting younger scholars regarding queer temporalities, queer experiences of time, and queer times themselves. Time deserves queering; and equally queer sexualities and styles are queer partly in virtue of their untimeliness. This wonderful collection explores the way each is bound up with and helps to complicate the other." - Elizabeth Grosz, author of Chaos, Territory, Art: Deleuze and the Framing of the Earth "This collection offers some of the most interesting recent work in queer studies about ontology, the virtual, and temporality. Ambitious and original, these essays illuminate the contemporary stakes of becoming and un-becoming queer." - Heather Love, author of Feeling Backward: Loss and the Politics of Queer History
