Brian Blanchfield
University of North Carolina Press

In his personal essay On Peripersonal Space, Brian Blanchfield uses the concept of peripersonal space-the entire volume of space within a person's reach, or within a single conceivable momentary extension of his person-as a metaphor to explore the complicated relationship with his mother both throughout childhood and after coming out as gay in adulthood.
