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'

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

Lynda

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.

Joy Bosworth

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
