Twenty-nine year old Julia Grampion has just received her doctorate at London University, but life is looking rather dismal. Her affair with Paul has ended because of religious complications, and she drifts, entering a relationship with Bernard, learning a different and changeable idiom of love, learning how language disguises the shifting uncertainties of the human ties that bind. Set in the academic and literary centre of 1950s London, the action occurs in university departments, the Reading Room of the British Museum, espresso bars and little Soho restaurants, the Serpentine Lido, the East End, publishers' parties, and even a “room of one’s own”, in Bloomsbury. The characters are many and varied, including Bernard, Julia’s new lover, a sensual, cultured and selfish academic, with a learned French wife, Nicolette; Paul, charming and still in love with Julia, devoted and unwilling or unable to transgress the laws of his Church; East African student Hussein, passionate and intelligent, simple and prompt with Sanuri proverbs, like the sudden and refreshing oasis appearing in the desert of the arid London life, that reveal his love for the beautiful Georgina. A first novel of wit and intelligence, marking the arrival of the unrivalled and extraordinary talent of Christine Brooke-Rose.

Love In The Western World

In this classic work, often described as "The History of the Rise, Decline, and Fall of the Love Affair," Denis de Rougemont explores the psychology of love from the legend of Tristan and Isolde to Hollywood. At the heart of his ever-relevant inquiry is the inescapable conflict in the West between marriage and passion--the first associated with social and religious responsiblity and the second with anarchic, unappeasable love as celebrated by the troubadours of medieval Provence. These early poets, according to de Rougemont, spoke the words of an Eros-centered theology, and it was through this "heresy" that a European vocabulary of mysticism flourished and that Western literature took on a new direction. Bringing together historical, religious, philosophical, and cultural dimensions, the author traces the evolution of Western romantic love from its literary beginnings as an awe-inspiring secret to its commercialization in the cinema. He seeks to restore the myth of love to its original integrity and concludes with a philosophical perspective on modern marriage.

Alicia Erian's characters are brave, disarming, affectionate, and deeply flawed. They inhabit the not-so-very-wide space between a good intention and a bad outcome. In "Alcatraz," we meet a middle-school spelling champion who spends her afternoons taking baths with the boy next door. In "Almonds and Cherries," a young woman turns an unexpectedly arousing bra-shopping experience into a short film, with ramifications for everyone around her. In "On the Occasion of My Ruination," a college-bound student plots to lose her virginity to a pizza parlor waiter. The Brutal Language of Love challenges traditional notions of right and wrong with what has become Erian's signature -- an achingly stylish humor and a deep understanding of the brutal truth about human nature. These surprising, provocative, and deeply resonant stories marked the emergence of a major talent
