When I started the Reality Street Narrative Series, I devised some copy for the page of this website devoted to it - which you can find
- trying to give it some context. This included my necessarily highly selective listing of writers of out-there fiction whose influence I perceived to be crucial.
Well, selective or not, it was an unforgivable lapse on my part to forget to include
, who has recently died. Gifted writers outside the mainstream in Britain face enough marginalisation without the likes of myself, inadvertently or not, adding to the general level of ignorance.
I have now belatedly remedied that lapse on the Narrative Series page, but it shouldn't have taken the sad death of this author - whose novel
omitted the verb "to be" a year before the Oulipian Perec's famous e-less
, as the Guardian obit reminds us - to jog my memory.
The excellent Carcanet Press have
several of Brooke-Rose's books in print
is included in
The Brooke-Rose Omnibus
. I must catch up with all the ones I've missed.
