boys love manga

I just ran across this title and I suspect that most of you, my very-tiny dwircle (sp?), want to know about it:
Boys' Love Manga: Essays on the Sexual Ambiguity and Cross-Cultural Fandom of the Genre
Amazon | OhioLINK

One of the editors, Antonia Levi, has a really familiar-sounding name. Do y'all know her? (Oh, perhaps answering my own question: she wrote Samurai from Outer Space: Understanding Japanese Animation, which I ordered for our library many years ago.)

Also, I love how "Boys Love Manga" and "Boys' Love Manga" means such completely different things.

Also also in the collection-development haul:

Watchmen as Literature
and
The Simpsons in the Classroom: Embiggening the Learning Experience with the Wisdom of Springfield
