Synopsis: Dusty Springfield - In the middle of nowhere deals with the idea of Dusty
Springfield as cultural icon - partly promoted by the woman who went by that
name, partly interpreted down the years by newspapers, magazines, television,
books, websites and, of course, by the author.

The main thrust of the work is descriptive - to track the cultural reception of Dusty
Springfield when she was alive and since her death. What has been said and
written about her music, appearance and celebrity is reviewed with the intention of
building a picture of one figure's place in Anglo-American culture. Although
neither history nor biography in any conventional sense, the book may be viewed
as containing historical and biographical features, as it narrates a life-in-text
across nearly half a century. The writing also sets Dusty against the musical and
social background of her times, and provides theoretical perspectives against
which to discuss her artistry.

This is the first book-length study of Dusty Springfield's contribution to popular
culture in terms of race, gender or sexuality, and will appeal to both fans and
readers with a general interest in popular music or cultural studies. The style of
the writing is `light academic', and the aim is to be entertaining and informative,
as well as to raise questions and stimulate discussion.
