(From the publisher):
Rose Theatre is the second book of the Sorrentino trilogy, the first book of which, Odd Number, was published in 1985. Rose Theatre, concentrating on data already posited, plus new data, endeavors to "correct" the errors of Odd Number. Everything is filtered through the experiences attendant upon the lives of the major female characters of the first book, yet as we read we discover that the new information has no authority to dispel the data given therein. Rather, Rose Theatre, in its desire to stabilize and clarify, adds new and unsettling material to that which we already possess.
Original title: Rose Theatre
Genre: Fiction→ General Fiction→ Literary Fiction/classics→ Post-modern, Avant-garde, & Experimental
