Praise for Notes from a Feminist Killjoy: Essays on Everyday Life

"If a feminist killjoy was to keep a notebook, scrawl down her thoughts and feelings as they come up, record her memories, her readings, leave traces of herself as she is intertwined with others, then you might end up with a book rather like this one. Erin Wunker's Notes from a Feminist Killjoy takes up the figure of the feminist killjoy as a site of political potential, and as a method, a life method, a way of handling situations that are difficult and demanding: from becoming a mother, living in a gendered body, to dealing with rape culture. This book offers a powerful plea for a feminism that is willing to kill any joy that derives from inequality and injustice. All feminist killjoys will want this book on their shelves!" --Sara Ahmed
