    Book synopsis: Queering the Interior problematizes the familiar space of 'home', exploring how queer men and women experience domestic life and unveiling the detail and complexity of queer home making. The book follows an innovative, unusual structure: divided into two sections, Upstairs and Downstairs, each of the nine chapters examine a different room or space inside the home. Our journey starts in the entryway and continues through the living room, dining room, kitchen, garden, bathroom/toilets, bedroom, closets, to the nursery. Each room is examined through the lens of specialists from a wide range of disciplines. Drawing upon a variety of methods – including case studies, spatial analysis, interviews and a photo essay – contributors from the UK, Australia, Canada, and the United States present detailed, grounded work which is rare to find in heavily theorised fields such as gender studies and queer theory. A highly creative approach to queer analysis of domestic spaces, Queering the Interior makes an important contribution to fields such as gender studies, cultural studies, design, architecture, anthropology, sociology, and cultural geography.
