From the Publisher
In an extraordinarily demanding revision of the autobiographical genre, Brut zeroes in on how the subject engages with language not merely to produce an exemplary identity but to write its own demise . . . Highly recommended.-K.M. Sibbald
Examines the shadowy forms of self that emerge in autobiography's call to represent the unrepresentable, or the subject's death.
An adventurous, incisive, and vigorous work of reading and theory that aspires to engage its subject - the autobiographical 'I' understood in its relation to an otherness exceeding representation-at a high level of intellectual responsibility.-Joshua Wilner
"If writing about autobiography has cutomarily focused on the narrative of the self, the project of self-knowledge, and self-revelation, E.S. Burt's challenging new book, Regard for the Other, declares its distinctiveness right up front."-Choice
