Here's what some people have said about the book:

"It is rare to come across a book that so skilfully combines probing analysis, theoretical sophistication, infectious curiosity and wit in highly readable proseThe Cinema of Sally Potter is, like the work of the artist it discusses, a labour of love, which argues powerfully for the political urgency of Potter's films and their capacity to transform our perception of the world." Libby Saxton, Queen Mary, University of London

"This is an eloquent and elegant book worthy of its eloquent and elegant subject. Two activist artists and artisan auteur(e)s meet on the pages of this book. Sophie Mayer's deeply personal yet learned study brings out the passion, the poetry and the politics of Sally Potter's cinema in its many transformative manifestations... This truly is a must read for anyone who has ever seen a Sally Potter film – or hasn't, and should." Linda Hutcheon, University of Toronto
