Closet Space: Geographies of Metaphor from the Body to the Globe

Paperback / softback
Is the closet just a metaphor? Closet Space provides a highly original account of the spatial metaphor of the closet , and is the first geography text to focus on this important issue. Using a variety of research techniques and materials, the book explores the closet through texts including: * the oral histories of gay men in the UK and US * the sexualised landscape of a New Zealand city * the national census of Britain and the US * international travel guides and travelogues and refers to the work of Butler, Lefebvre and Foucault.
