  • FOUR NOVELS: Out (1964), Such (1966), Between (1968) and Thru (1975)

    The Brooke-Rose Omnibus brings together four unexpected 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. Linking them all is wit, inventiveness and the sharply focused intellegence of Christine Brooke-Rose, a great European humanist writer.
    Christine Frances Evelyn Brooke-Rose was a British writer and literary critic, known principally for her later, experimental novels.

She was brought up mainly in Brussels, and educated there, at Somerville College, Oxford and University College, London. ... read more

    Frank Kermode on Thru
    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...
