Summary

Helene Cixous is undoubtedly one of the most brilliant and innovative contemporary thinkers. Published here in English for the first time Helene Cixous, Rootprints is an ideal introduction to Cixous's theory and her fiction, tracing her development as a writer and intellectual whose remarkable prespicacity and electrifying poetic force are known world-wide.
Unprecedented in its form and content this collection breaks new ground in the theory and practice of auto/biography. Cixous's creative reflections on the past provide occasion for scintillating forays into the future.
The text includes:
* an extended interview between Cixous and Calle-Gruber, exploring Cixous's creative and intellectual processes
* a revealing collection of photographs taken from Cixous's family album, set against a poetic reflection by the author
* selections from Cixous's private notebooks
* a contribution by Jacques Derrida
* original 'thing-pieces' by Calle-Gruber.
