“A necessary read for those looking to expand their understanding of both bisexuality and the contributions of Third Wave feminism.”—Rebecca Walker, Bookforum
“Revealing, smart, titillating . . . Look Both Ways [cuts] straight to the heart of many young women’s fraught relationship to both feminism and their own femininity.” —Jessica Clark, In These Times
“Baumgardner's voice remains as compelling as ever, not only because she writes with the candor of your closest friend, but because she herself appears to be learning and questioning along with the reader.” —Fiorella Valdesolo, Nylon
“Baumgardner is generally thoughtful and honest, with a refreshing sense of humor about herself and her politics. . . . Baumgardner's prose, at its best, is warm, unpretentious and funny . . . And as a memoirist, she is impressively willing to make herself vulnerable. . . . Her arguments for sexual complexity and openness are compelling, as are her claims that bisexual experiences can supply a kind of stereoscopic vision.”— Rebecca Tuhus-Dubrow, Salon

"For author and activist Jennifer Baumgardner, bisexuality has always been more than "the sexual non-preference of the '90s," and in Look Both Ways she takes a close look at gay and bisexual people on the national cultural stage and the issues their growing visibility raises, particularly for younger women navigating the murky waters of identity. Baumgardner discusses her own experience as a bisexual and the struggle she has undergone to reconcile the privilege she's garnered as a woman who is perceived as straight with the empowerment and satisfaction she's derived from her relationships with women."--BOOK JACKET.
