In a magnetic, irresistible narrative, Cixous reflects on the writing process and explores three distinct areas for 'great' writing:

The School of the Dead - the notion that something or someone must die in order for good writing to be born;

The School of Dream - the crucial role dreams play in literary inspiration and production;

The School of Roots - the importance of depth and the 'nether realms' in all aspects of writing.
