Promotional Information

"Deri weaves together academic theory, past research, activist/community writing, and the voices of participants in a sophisticated, engaging, and accessible way. Love's Refraction is a pleasure to read." -- Meg Barker, Department of Psychology, The Open University "Love's Refraction is a timely, innovative and exciting study of how lesbian, bisexual, or queer-identified women work through issues related to jealousy in polyamorous relations. This is a ground-breaking contribution to the cultural study of emotions and polyamory." -- Christian Klesse, Department of Sociology, Manchester Metropolitan University "Interesting to read and delightfully approachable, Love's Refraction brings gender, power, emotions, and polyamory in to clear focus. Deri provides enough context that Love's Refraction will be useful to people who had previously known nothing about polyamory, while at the same time loading the book with such rich detail that it is well worth reading for even the most seasoned researcher of polyamory." -- Elisabeth Sheff, PhD, author of 'The Polyamorists Next Door: Inside Multiple-Partner Relationships and Families'
