The complete and groundbreaking The L Word is now out on DVD and this book makes the perfect companion, covering the series in its entirety. Loving The L Word picks up where Reading The L Word: Outing Contemporary Television (I.B. Tauris, 2006) left off. With new, updated chapters by many of the same television writers and scholars who contributed to the first volume, as well as essays by some newcomers, Loving The L Word explores the series' quantum contribution to the ongoing evolution of queer television.

Whether you loved The L Word, hated it, or loved to hate it, this book recognizes that the show transformed the post-Ellen LGBT television landscape, fulfilling a long-neglected, visceral desire for lesbian stories and images. In the process, it reshaped the communities that follow and talk about queer television and care about the narratives and characters that drive it. Including complete Character/Actor, Film/TV and Episode guides, the book also proceeds from the understanding that while The L Word ended in 2009 it manages to live on—in the lives of its fans, as well as in a new reality spin-off, The Real L Word.

Dana Heller is Professor and Chair of the English Department at Old Dominion University. She writes about popular culture, television, queer studies, and most things considered to be in bad taste. A four-time Senior Fulbright Fellow, her books include Family Plots: The De-oedipalization of Popular Culture (1997), The Great American Makeover: Television History, Nation (2006), Makeover Television: Realities Remodelled (I.B.Tauris, 2007) and Hairspray (2011).
