This book is in very good condition with only slight creasing and sun bleaching to the edges of the dust jacket. Otherwise, all pages and the cover are clean and intact.
Thru could be described as a mirror of modern consciousness, viewed, necessarily, as a series of texts: society is a text, the human body as a text. Thru is also about the production of texts, this text, and language itself, without which there would be no politics, no marriage and families, no psycho-analysis, no universities, no revolution, no human relationships. This perhaps is Christine Brook-Rose's most ambitious book. It is her intention to make demands on us, even to baffle us, and she obviously delights in doing so. We in turn are delighted by that intelligence, informed, sparking, as playful ass it is incisive, unique.
