"Gendering the Fair makes a signal contribution to our understanding of world's fairs, gender, and modernization. The essays force a rethinking not only of world's fairs but also of the often-contested and always interesting relationships among gender, nationality, and the formation of feminine and masculine identity." Candy Gunther Brown, author of The Word in the World: Evangelical Writing, Publishing, and Reading in America "Reading Boyishly exemplifies the kind of aesthetic-critical writing for which Marina Warner has invented the intriguing label 'new hedonist', a term that she struck on in a TLS review of Mavor's first book, and that Mavor quotes in the first sentence of her newest book as a jumping-off point." - Jonah Corne, Modern Cultures, Vol 7, No. 1 2012
