Volume One: Christine Brooke-Rose



The flagship issue fêtes Christine Brooke-Rose, one of the most innovative voices of the twentieth century, whose fiction plays challenging games with form and structure, using grammatical constraints, multiple languages, and a dicing of genre styles and theoretical discourses as an integral component of her novels.  This 320-page issue contains creative and critical responses to her fiction, theory, and criticism, written with an eye to the general literary reader unfamiliar with her output, but with enough homage, parody, imitation, and analysis to excite her devoted fan base.
