Mothers of Invention Feminist Authors and Experimental Fiction in France and Quebec

Synopsis

Mothers of Invention Feminist Authors and Experimental Fiction in France and Quebec by Milena Santoro

An examination of the feminist avant-garde aesthetics developed in experimental novels of the mid-1970s.

Reviews

Santoro fulfills her objectives quite marvelously through a series of close readings of novels written by four wonderfully chosen writers. She is very clear and engaging. Lynn Penrod, Modern Languages and Cultural Studies, University of Alberta /// A significant and original contribution to scholarship. Santoro opens the way to a fresh and new understanding of what is meant by the tired phrase 'French feminisms.
She knows well the novels she has chosen to study and makes nuanced interpretations of difficult passages. Louise Forsyth, Women

's and Gender Studies, University of Saskatchewan'
