Jenny Sunden analyses Patchwork Girl (1995) in a structured text which begins with questions about endings, moves to the body of stories and ends with questions about the beginnings of narratives. She looks at the acts of writing and reading in hyperfiction and how these acts link to reproduction of both bodies and stories. Sunden’s account of Shelley Jackson‘s work further explores the relationship between women and machines and ask questions about authenticity, fragmentation and reproductive anxiety.
