Killer in Drag

“If we had the time to read
Forbidden Love as something
like a pulp film—we would be
ushered toward a set of
questions about pulp’s
transformations across
media, its specularization
of the clandestine.”
—Amy Villarejo, “Forbidden
Love: Pulp as Lesbian History,”
Out Takes: Essays on Queer
Theory and Film

Ed Wood Jr. writes pulp fiction—lots of it
Although known—for his camp & kitschy movies
Like Glen or Glenda (1953)—and Jailbait (1954)
Wood helps pulp fiction—enter mainstream USA
Sordid transgressive—postmodern lit crit
