Buszek in Baltimore CityPaper

9780822337348 Maria Elena Buszek, author of Pin-Up Grrrls, is interviewed for a long article on modern pin-ups in the Baltimore CityPaper. "’The pinup is about hiding as much about revealing, where porn is about giving it all up–which is fabulous,’ she explains over the phone from her home, where, coincidentally, she’s also in the first months of her own maternity leave. ‘But the pinup’s a different animal altogether. The very word, ‘pinup,’ is about display, as opposed to something that’s covertly looked at. The pinup is this balancing act that draws a particular kind of woman who’s interested in constructing their sexuality. It’s about theater and masquerade.’"
