Summary Is the closet just a metaphor? Closet Space provides a highly original account of the spatial metaphor of "the closet", and is the first geography text to focus on this important issue. Using a variety of research techniques and materials, the book explores the closet through texts including:* the oral histories of gay men in the UK and US* the sexualised landscape of a New Zealand city* the national census of Britain and the US* international travel guides and traveloguesand refers to the work of Butler, Lefebvre and Foucault.
