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.
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 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...
