Think Differently                  

The Queer Child




by Kathryn Bond Stockton, 296 pages

   The Queer Child is about finding and creating impossible relations, and it is this impossibility that turns Stockton away from history and to literatures and media. In charting the extraordinary (and sometimes oddly ordinary) relations between girls and dogs, girls and money, boys and tutors, motions and motive, desire and danger, Stockton delivers the queerness that lies at the heart of every child, the sideways growth that children endure, initiate, or simply stumble upon. For those of us for whom queerness and queer thinking still holds political promise, The Queer Child imagines for its audience a world neither bound by the dictates of heteronormativity (marriage or gay marriage), but nor does it stall on a premature presumption that queerness ought to only offer negativity and resistance to the order of things. Instead, we get something fresh and capacious, a book that redefines how we read and look at children, queerness, and their inextricability. . -- Amazon reviewer
