About the Author:

E. L. McCallum teaches in the Department of English at Indiana University.

Review:

The topic of fetishism has been taken up by both feminist and lesbian criticism, and this book represents an important contribution to thinking about this issue, particularly because McCallum charts out a whole new direction for work in this area. Moreover, because her analysis addresses the nature of identity and the status of the subject, Object Lessons has important implications for feminist theory in general.
The clarity of style reflects, in turn, the fact that the argument is very well thought out. McCallum s logic is impeccable. Not only does she seem to cover all possible interpretations of the passages she is discussing, but, when she is at her very best, the book is dazzling, with a new twist being introduced in the argument every two pages or so. It was a great pleasure to read a book in which the workings of a very fine intellect were so continually evident. Dennis W. Allen, West Virginia University"
