The Infernal Desire Machines of Doctor Hoffman Book Review:

With a new introduction by Ali Smith 'One of the most original, radical and stylish fiction writers of the twentieth century' Independent Desiderio, an employee of the city under a bizarre reality attack from Doctor Hoffman's mysterious machines, has fallen in love with Albertina, the Doctor's daughter. But Albertina, a beautiful woman made of glass, seems only to appear to him in his dreams. Meeting on his adventures a host of cannibals, centaurs and acrobats, Desiderio must battle against unreality and the warping of time and space to be with her, as the Doctor reduces Desiderio's city to a chaotic state of emergency - one ridden with madness, crime and sexual excess. A satirical tale of magic and sex, The Infernal Desire Machines of Doctor Hoffman is a dazzling quest for truth, love and identity.

Intimacy and Identity in the Postmodern Novel Book Review:

This book focuses on the themes of intimacy and identity in the contemporary novel and, in particular, in the novels of A. S. Byatt, Angela Carter and Jeanette Winterson. Not only do the specificity of the contemporary social context and a growing awareness of the relational nature of the concepts of intimacy and identity set these novels apart from earlier writing that take these issues more for granted. Their very concern with the themes of intimacy and identity also sets them apart from much postmodernist, or mannerist, writing that chooses to cold-shoulder these arguments. The study draws on work by contemporary social theorists and philosophers, and aims to examine issues which, although central to the writing of these authors, have been neglected or treated superficially in literary criticism. Finally, it looks into the ways in which the new approaches to the question of intimacy and identity relate and contribute to contemporary debates on the postmodern novel.

Breaking the Frame Book Review:

This cutting-edge work of narrative theory examines how metalepsis--the transgression of the boundaries between narrative levels--has been used to construct the postmodern narrative subject. Concentrating on the writings of Samuel Beckett, Christine Brooke-Rose, and Angela Carter, Malina both interprets the narrative strategies of these authors and offers a new theoretical tool--a deconstructive approach to narratological categories that allows readers to focus on process rather than structures. This volume abstracts a model of metaleptic subject construction that has significant implications for narrative theory: rather than viewing narrative as static product, the deconstructive narratology it launches would accommodate narrative's bi-directional or cyclical dynamics and elaborate the energetics of the narrative process. While constructing this new approach, Malina also offers sensitive and insightful readings of the texts at hand, making this book a combination of theory and interpretation of narrative and thus a fine addition to a narrative collection.

Angela Carter Surrealist Psychologist Moral Pornographer Book Review:

Contributing to the conversation regarding Angela Carter's problematic relationship with what she viewed as the interrelated traditions of surrealism and psychoanalysis, Scott Dimovitz explores the intricate connections between Carter's private life and her public writing. He begins with Carter's assertion that it was through her "sexual and emotional life" that she was radicalized, drawing extensively on the British Library's recently archived collection of Carter's private papers, journals, and letters to show how that radicalization happened and what it meant both for her worldview and for her writings. Through close textual analysis and a detailed study of her papers, Dimovitz analyzes the ways in which this second-wave feminist's explorations of sexuality merged with her investigations into surrealism and psychoanalysis, an engagement that ultimately led to the explosively surreal allegories of Carter's later, more complex, and more accomplished work. His study not only offers a new way to view Carter's oeuvre, but also makes the case for the importance of Angela Carter's vision in understanding the transformations in feminist thinking from the postwar to the postfeminist generation.
