  • This lucid, intellectually rigorous book embraces the complexity of CB-R’s novels from The Languages of Love to Textermination and satisfyingly summarises the constraints and challenges in her most difficult novels. A career-spanning study has yet to be written, so for neophytes this essential text will help decrypt some of the potentially frustrating barriers and obscurities clouding your reading of the books. (If it were available).


  • Not essential for 'understanding' Christine Brooke-Rose, but damn interesting with A LOT of cool tidbits and comparisons to other French and British writers of the 60s and 70s. No one reads CB-R, let alone writes 200 page books about her. 5 stars for the effort alone, though the read is very well worth it. I highly suggest this to any CB-R fan - the trick, of course with all things CB-R related, will be getting a copy.
