Alien Plots. Female Subjectivity and the Divine in the Light of James Tiptree's A Momentary Taste of Being (Liverpool University Press, 2000)
At the heart of this provocative study is a science fiction story by James Tiptree Jr (Alice Sheldon-Bradley, 1916-1987). It includes an outline of Tiptree's work and of her remarkable life as the only child of jungle explorers, a painter, an American agent during World War II, an experimental psychologist, and a female SF writer in male disguise.
The author situates her study in an interdisciplinary framework of literary theory, religious studies, and cultural theory.
