Book summary: Touching Fire


The sexual orientation of the protagonists is never in question: they’re always queer. As series editor and feminist writer L. Timmel Duchamp notes in her accompanying critical essay, Griffith “creates an exclusively female sexual economy that operates regardless of the presence or absence of males in the narrative, such that only female characters exercise sexual agency or express sexual desire.” And desire is clearly and urgently expressed in all of the stories in this collection, although it is not always the romantic desire that Griffith draws out so expertly in “Touching Fire.”
