"This stunningly good book is an example of literary criticism of the old style. . . . Woodhouse's close and extremely perceptive readings of works by White, Isherwood, Andrew Holleran, Gore Vidal, Larry Kramer, and many more need to be read by anyone with a serious interest in American gay male literature."--"Library Journal."

Reed Woodhouse teaches English at MIT. He is an associate editor of the Harvard Gay and Lesbian Review and a contributing editor with the Boston Book Review.
"Unlimited Embrace is a book to converse with. For something so scholarly and thoughtful, it has a light intimacy in which the author is as much a reason for reading the essays as anything. We want to drink tea, or beer, with Woodhouse because who wouldn't want to spend time with somebody who is smart as a whip, funny as hell, and not afraid to talk about sex?" -- Brian Bouldry, Lambda Book Report One of those rare works of literary criticism that is itself a work of literature.--David Bergman, author of Gaiety Transfigured: Gay Self-Representation in American Literature Woodhouse is a first-rate literary critic of the old school -- of the sort I feared had become extinct from breathing the exhaust fumes of poststructuralism. In fact, he reminds me a bit of Edmund Wilson (I do not make this comparison lightly) in his shrewd book sense and his sparkling prose style.--John W. Crowley, editor of Genteel Pagan: The Double Life of Charles Warren Stoddard
