This weeks' Books of the Week are Christine Brooke-Rose's last and latest novel Life, End of (Carcanet Press) and James Williams' Understanding Poststructuralism (Acumen). James, you'll also note, is this week's RSB interviewee. I'll be publishing an extract from his excellent Understanding Poststructuralism later in the week.
As I mention in my interview with James, Understanding Poststructuralism is bound to be sold as an introductory text for students, but it is actually an awful lot better than many such books are. James is obviously in full command of his material and his very clearly written book mounts a strong defence of the importance of poststructuralism and some of its key thinkers. I'd highly recommend it.
