Pressestimmen"This intelligent and clear-thinking book provides a fascinating look into the racial fantasies of five modernist women. Focussing our attention on the evasions and displacements of both psychoanalysis and feminism, Walton demonstrates that race is never very far from twentieth-century culture's founding narratives of sexual difference. A welcome and important investigation of white women's racial imaginaries, a study as intellectually subtle as it is boldly original."--Diana Fuss, author of "Identification Papers"
