More About the Author

Gabriel Josipovici was born in Nice in 1940 of Russo-Italian, Romano-Levantine parents. He lived in Egypt from 1945 to 1956, when he came to Britain. He read English at St Edmund Hall, Oxford, graduating with a First in 1961. From 1963 to 1996 he taught at the University of Sussex, where he is now Research Professor in the Graduate School of Humanities.

He has published over a dozen novels, three volumes of short stories and a number of critical books. His plays have been performed throughout Britain and on radio in Britain, France and Germany, and his work has been translated into the major European languages and Arabic. In 2001 he published "A Life", a biographical memoir of his mother, the translator and poet Sacha Rabinovitch (London Magazine editions). His most recent works are the two short novels "After" and "Making Mistakes" (Carcanet), and the critical book "What Ever Happened to Modernism?" (Yale University Press).

Product Description


"Josipovici is able to relate ordinary human concerns to some of the most important intellectual issues of the twentieth century. There are few writers in England of whom this could be said." "--Times Literary Supplement"

5.0 out of 5 stars Short,Thin But Full 29 Nov 1999
This is a short book created by mostly one-liner sentence -dialogues. But it is satisfying and a challenging book.I find this book a pioneering and unique experiment.
