He makes nothing explicit and demands your full attention and brainpower as a reader. A highly non-linear deconstruction of pulp fiction and orientalist tropes, and an assault on narrative coherence itself.

Creolecat rated it liked it Aug 16, Books by Alain Robbe-Grillet. Any one scene connects seamlessly, in the highly refined R-G manner rationally to those that precede and follow, but will completely be at odds with nearly anything else we’re told outside of that window. Robbe-Grillet cktas doesn’t go for Toscanini-like brightness of moments and is much more devoted to Adorno-praised interest in the structure of a piece.

I liken this unto the Russian Matryoshka doll also known as the “Matryoshka principle”.

Paperbackpages. Here we seem the same scenes over and over, but from different vantage points, or with different causes, or with different outcomes, and often in completely different contexts, until we’re uncertain what has actually happened, who it’s happened to, why it’s happened, and what if anything was just part robbbe the play.

Timelines and plots are fractured and the resulting novel resembles the literary equivalent of a cubist painting. Or perhaps it’s more like Italo Calvino’s “The Burning of the Slain House”, wherein an insurance agent attempts to reconstruct all the possibilities grillet four people and a list of unseemly acts — except in R-G’s story, all these possibilities exist in dizzying multiverse simultaneity.

A vast multiplication of narrative possibilities. Cindy rated it it was gfillet May 01, Ewelina rated it it was amazing Oct 02, Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

La Maison de rendez-vous

La Maison de rendez-vous was published a year after In C premiere, and while this is a random fact I needed to start the review, the book has a strikingly similar usage of repetitions and slow changes common in minimalist music.

Instead, one slowly pieces together the story and csaa emotional experience of jealousy in the repetition of descriptions, the attention to alaih details, and the breaks in repetitions. In America, the “Onion principle” would be more widely recognized herein, if the outer layer alwin peeled off an onion, a similar onion exists within.
