TEXTS THAT SHOULDN’T BE READ OUT LOUD—Bridget’s first collection—is a prose work concerned with both the production and the subversion of fiction. It investigates how fiction can shape the experience of affect in the contemporary subject, being at times disjointed, dystopian, and unsettling—as much as it is inviting. ‘So what are we to do with a book that, with the exception of one or two pieces, is bereft of proper names? We have to develop alternative reading strategies,’ writes Kenneth Goldsmith in his foreword, ‘this is a hookless text, resembling the namelessness and anonymously flat spaces of Beckett’s late prose as much as it does the rambling excess of the alphanumeric internet.’

The book is available from selected shops or can be purchased directly from the author here
