In this extended meditation on the language of the self within contemporary social politics, the author ponders the question: What does it matter what you say about yourself? She studies why the requirement to be a something-or-other should be so hard to satisfy in a manner that rings true in the ears of its own subject.This is a remarkable book, eloquent and imaginative, witty and learned, brilliant and intellectually nuanced.
