Toth, Frieda. “Book Review: Unsettling Assumptions: Tradition,
Gender, Drag.” New York Folklore, vol. 40-3-4, 2014, p. 47.


The essays in this volume address queer identity and sexuality in such varied places as Mennonite mummers’ plays and Chinese folklore. In case the reader was about to dismiss the writings as not relevant to contemporary American life, rockabilly culture and cinematic interpretations of the Brothers Grimm are also covered.
