Christine Brooke-Rose, the British writer known for experimental novels such as the autobiographical Remake (1996), has died at the age of 89.
Born in Switzerland, she worked at Bletchley Park during the Second World War and for a while worked in London as a journalist before starting her career as a novelist. Her first novel, The Languages of Love, was published in 1957 but it was in the 60s and 70s – after she had moved to live in France – that she really made her name with books such as Between (1968) and Thru (1975).
Brooke-Rose taught at the University of Vincennes (Paris) until she retired in 1988, after which she focused on her writing. She was also a noted poet, literary critic and translator, with particular interested in the work of Alain Robbe-Grillet.
