Verbivoracious Press publishes a triannual festschrift celebrating the work of lesser-known European writers.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. Brooke-Rose is among an unfortunate revue of writers whose work is fading out of print, rarely part of critical or academic discussion.This issue contains creative responses to her fiction and criticism, written with an eye to the general literary reader unfamiliar with her output, but with enough homage, parody, imitation, and criticism to excite her devoted fan base. Among the contents: a detailed essay on her writing constraints and illustrative examples of her complex techniques, alongside short stories, critical essays, and assorted unclassifiable pieces in thrall to her many modes. This issue also contains rare material by Brooke-Rose herself, including a re-print of her first-ever publication, the long poem Gold.
