Carringer offers alternative readings of a canonical text, each of which ultimately derives from one of the original authorial models. The first is an ambitious queer theory reading of Alfred Hitchcock's 1951 classic "Strangers on a Train," and the second is a reconsideration of the film's queer issues from the perspective of collaborative authorship.
