"Overall, In Other Words represents an impressive effort by Ray to link, compress but also carefully reread a wide swath of Spivak's work. At times disorienting in its scope like the theorist's own work, Ray's book offers a sustained engagement with some of Spivak's most valuable insights and has me returning to her oeuvre with fresh eyes." (Postcolonial Text, 2011)
