Abstract

Book Reviews 503 social confrontations with normative institutional formations such as nationhood are marked by ghostly non-normative appearances and emer- gences that need to be challenged and interpreted. Jarrod Hayes argues that such apparitions expose the internal contradictions and counter-intuitive stances of queer rhizomatic beings and becomings in the diaspora. He draws a rich map of various diasporic queer cultural texts and readings that opens up compelling ways of settling, moving, and living queerly in more resonant, meaningful, and sensitive ways. The burgeoning literature on migration and queerness is richer for the smart and generous intellec- tual itineraries and novel vistas he has offered. This work will hopefully spark other scholars to ask equally astute questions that may lead us to uncharted horizons of the queer diasporic elsewhere and towards alterna- tive landscapes and queer ways of being and knowing.
