History and literature seem to be losing ground in the contemporary world of electronic media, and battle lines have been drawn between the humanities and technology, the first world and the third, women and men. Narrator Mira Enketei erases these boundaries in a punning monologue that blends the contemporary with the historical, and in which she sees herself as Cassandra, condemned by Apollo to prophesy but never to be believed, enslaved by Agamemnon after the fall of Troy. Here, Brooke-Rose amalgamates ancient literature and modern anxieties to produce a powerful novel about our future.
