About the Author

Jonathan A. Allan holds the Canada research chair in queer theory at Brandon University, Canada.


'Allan's work is, in a sense, groundbreaking ... opening up a whole new field of study ... Allan's book should be required reading.'
The Independent'A serious work of theory, exploring the backside as a site of humiliation and disgust.'
The Guardian`Assholes are like opinions: Everyone has them - but no one has more opinions on assholes than Jonathan Allan.'
VICE`Jonathan Allan has come up with a whole theory of the arsehole.'
Dazed and Confused`Looks at the subject of the `booty' with remarkable enthusiasm.'
Attitude`Entertaining and informative.'
Merrill Cole, author of The Other Orpheus: A Poetics of Modern Homosexuality`A remarkably fresh and original contribution to contemporary queer studies. I am confident that, with Reading from Behind, Allan will emerge as a widely respected critical voice of his generation.'
David William Foster, author of Sexual Textualties: Essays on Queer/ing Latin American Writing`Allan reorients studies of anality.'
Todd Reeser, author of Masculinities in Theory'Readers outside the academy will be rewarded with a fine example of textual analysis-and, possibly, a new appreciation of the anus as the most democratic and empowering of our body parts.'
