She was brought up mainly in Brussels, and educated there, at Somerville College, Oxford and University College, London.
    Praise for Christine Brooke-Rose If we are ever to experience in English the serious practice of narrative as the French have developed it over the last few years, we shall have to attend to Christine Brooke-Rose.
    Frank Kermode on Thru
    She is a sublime rollercoaster: hold on and hurtle with her - the ride will be exhilarating.
    Spectator
    We always need to have somebody who is willing to venture into the still vast terra incognita of fiction.
    Sunday Telegraph
    Her finest novel completely succeeds because subject and language are one.
    Angus Wilson on Between
    Such is a runaway success for her original technique... funny, painful, exciting, haunting...
    Elizabeth Smart
    Out represents quite a new departure in Miss Brooke-Rose's work... a splendid achievement...
