A novel in which the conventions and traditions of the genre are studiously avoided.
- The exemplary works of artistic autonomy were, for Adorno, the ‘experimental’ works of modernism, especially the music of Arnold Schoenberg and in literature the antinovels of Samuel Beckett.
- It's novel and antinovel, locked in carnal embrace, and fighting it out for the earthly vehicle of the author.
- But Rowson's Tristram Shandy is an antinovel not about WRITING but about READING Sterne's Tristram Shandy.
