"Love and Money is at once fiercely intellectual and full of heart, formidable and invitingly funny. Lisa Henderson offers some of the sharpest, most imaginative analysis of queerness and social class out there, shaking up entrenched ideas about how the two are and should be related."

"Exemplifying the values of love and solidarity she finds in her cases, Henderson offers innovative approaches to thinking queer and class together and fresh answers to longstanding questions about what it means to make art in a market economy."

Love and Money shows that we can't understand contemporary queer cultures without looking through the lens of social class. Through encounters with readers and cultural producers—and such popular texts as Boys Don't Cry, Brokeback Mountain, and wedding announcements in the New York Times—Love and Money explores queerness and class in everyday life and argues for a renewed cultural politics rooted in friendship.
