Island Bodies Book
Island Bodies: Transgressive Sexualities in the Caribbean Imagination is unique in its breadth as well as its multilingual and multidisciplinary approach, addressing homosexuality, interracial relations, transgender people, and women’s sexual agency in Dutch, Francophone, Anglophone, and Hispanophone works of Caribbean literature.

Ultimately King reveals that despite the varied national specificity, differing colonial legacies, and linguistic diversity across the islands, there are striking similarities in the ways Caribglobal cultures attempt to restrict sexuality and in the ways individuals explore and transgress those boundaries.
