Stories, Theories and Things by Christine Brooke-Rose
Book DescriptionThe 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.

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.
