"Voluntary Detours is a great book. Lianne McTavish writes about each museum with such a careful eye for detail that the exhibitions, founders, volunteers, and locations come vividly alive to the reader. She then develops these observations into wide-ranging critical arguments about people's practical, political, and emotional relationship to museums. This ability to combine description with cultural debate is itself a real skill; it is only because the writing is so lucid and elegant that she makes it looks easy." Fiona Candlin, Birkbeck, University of London, and author of Micromuseology: An Analysis of Small Independent Museums
