""An absorbing and beautiful book that reshapes the relations between feminism and cultural studies ... teaches us new ways of learning to make our own personal and collective histories."" -- Meaghan Morris ""An accessible, self-questioning, thoughtful book which takes one on a fascinating, labyrinthine journey from the family photograph album to filmic representations of the past."" -- Raphael Samuel "Khun... is one of those rare academics whose prose is a pleasure to read: clear, evocative and accessible." - New Statesman "Family Secrets is not only a poignant personal memoir, it is also an exemplary act of engaged cultural criticism. An influential reader of visual culture, a prominent feminist critic, an imaginative analyst of autobiographical and photographic texts, Khun provides the blueprint for interpreting the complicated stories we live by, stories whose tangled roots lie in our childhood, brilliantly connecting private history and public event, intimate memory and social theory, Annette Khun performs a tour de force." - Nancy K. Miller
