"Beauty and the Beast is an original work, surprising not only in its thesis but in its tone, pacing, and voice. It presents its case slowly and through digressions and returns, performing a way of theorizing through writing, training the reader to follow what's going on as an ethnographer does-how everything matters, how we should just see where it all goes, and how we shouldn't overdo it. Gripping, moving, and brilliant, Beauty and the Beast is fun to read and to think with. It punctures an apparatus, producing a great sigh of relief. It is a gift." -Katie Stewart, University of Texas at Austin"
