Stories, Theories and Things by Christine Brooke-Rose

Book Description

The novelist and critic Christine Brooke-Rose reflects on her own fictional craft and turns her well-developed analytic abilities on other writers fictional and critical, from Hawthorne to Pound to Bloom and Derrida, in an attempt to investigate those difficult border zones between the 'invented' and the 'real'. The result is an extended meditation in a highly personal idiom, on the creative act and its relation to modern theoretical writing and thinking. Like her fiction, Professor Brooke-Rose's criticism is self-consciously experimental, trying out and discarding ideas, adopting others. Her linguistic prowess, her uncommon role as a recognised writer of fiction and theory and the relevance of her work to the feminist and other other movements, all contribute to the interest of this unusual sequence of essays.

Stories, Theories and Things by Christine Brooke-Rose Stories, Theories and Things, Paperback (March 2009)

Brooke-Rose Omnibus by Christine Brooke-Rose Brooke-Rose Omnibus, Paperback (February 2006)

Brings together four novels: "Out", a science-fiction vision of a world surviving catastrophe; "Such", in which a three-minute heart massage is developed into a poetic and funny narrative; "Between", a glittering experience of the multiplicity of language; and "Thru", a novel in which text and typography assume a life of their own.

Life, End of by Christine Brooke-Rose Life, End of, Paperback (February 2006)

Explores the meanings and non-meanings to which, in the end, life and art lead us.

Subscript by Christine Brooke-Rose Subscript, Paperback (October 1999)

We are inside a pre-biotic chemical reaction some million years ago, as it suddenly forms a membrane and becomes a prokaryot cell. In this title, the author blends her narratorless technique with an extension of ancient convention, that of lending words to creatures that have none, indeed have no consciousness, to move steadily through evolution.
