About this product
- DescriptionWe are inside a pre-biotic chemical reaction some million years ago, as it suddenly forms a membrane and becomes a prokaryot cell. In this title, the author blends her narratorless technique with an extension of ancient convention, that of lending words to creatures that have none, indeed have no consciousness, to move steadily through evolution.
- Author BiographyChristine Brooke-Rose was born in Geneva and educated at Somerville College, Oxford and University College, London.
