This book proposes a way to read autobiographical writing by those the dominant deem "other" than themselves. Focusing on innovative works by Woolf, Baldwin, Kingston, and Winterson, the author analyzes how they each represent the self as unique, collectively "other," and inclusively human, and how these conflicting aspects of selfhood interact.
