“Lynn Spigel’s Welcome to the Dreamhouse is quite simply superb. It is original, impeccably researched, dazzlingly intelligent, and prickling with humor.”—Julie D’Acci, author of Defining Women: Television and the Case of Cagney and Lacey — N/A
“Spigel possesses one of the few indispensable voices in American cultural studies. She sees the complexity of popular culture where others have tended to see formula and repetition. This is a perfect anthology, one that reflects the intellectual growth of an important thinker and at the same time represents a coherent argument about an important topic.”—Henry Jenkins, author of From Barbie to Mortal Combat — N/A
