These interviews with literary professor Hélène Cixous—author of Portrait of Jacques Derrida as a Young Jewish Saint—offer invaluable insight into her own philosophy and criticism. Culled from newspapers, journals, and books, these conversations span more than three decades and address the major concerns of Cixous's critical work. The collection includes dialogues with Derrida and Michel Foucault and Jacques Derrida as well as a new conversation with Susan Sellers, the book's editor and a leading Cixous scholar and translator.
"Everything that concerns Hélène Cixous is of interest. To my knowledge, there exists no other volume quite like this one. These interviews reveal the different aspects of Cixous's work with its underlying insistence on writing itself."—Verena Conley
