Toronto: Guernica, 2006. Second English Edition, translated from the French by Barbara Godard, with correction to the text. 12mo. 195pp. New. Trade paperback.A novel first published in French in 1982, Picture Theory demonstrates Brossard's fiction theorique and her pre-occupation with the difficulty of writing and reading woman. The title (taken from Wittgenstein) implies her reference to the hologram as a new pictorial model for woman; liek the hologram which is intended to be read from an infinite number of changing conditions, Brossard's text abstracts the image of the feminine so that it can be read from all angles.
