's review

it was ok
bookshelves: literature

I often look for 'new' writers (Butor isn't exactly new anymore) who might be making breakthroughs in style & content. I thought Butor might've been one of them. So I read this. I just found it dull. It's possible that whatever might've been purported as 'new' in his style might've been a total deliberate absence of drama, excitement, whatever. Maybe there's a fascinating philosophy behind it. But I just found it dull. Oh well. I'd probably read something else by him if I were ever to find anything else in translation.
