      This exemplary anthology is nearly 45 years(!) young . . . back in 1971, Ann Quin had two years to live, God bless her depressive soul, William H. Gass was taking the first daring leap into his tunnel, Joyce Carol Oates was still barging her way into every anthology humanly conceivable, someone had heard of Keith Fort, Jorge Luis Borges had recently been “discovered” by Americans, Alain Robbe-Grillet was still taken seriously, and Eugène Ionesco was briefly recognised as a brilliant writer [...]

      Perhaps not every story in here is 5 stars, but the fact this weird anthology exists is enough to warrant it. Picked this off of my Dad's shelf back when I was a teenager and was duly impressed by all of the weirdness. My first exposure to Borges (I didn't get it at the time [it's Menard]), Barth, Gass, Sarraute, Coover, Barthelme, Edson. Through this I found Enrique Anderson Imbert, a rather odd Argentinian writer who worked primarily in the ultra-short story form and who I have seen nowhere el [...]

      دو یا سه داستانش را برای پادکست داستانم انتخاب کردم. به نظرم مجموعه داستان خوبی است. t/radiotor

      There are some real gems in this anthology, but few real surprises. The majority of the best stories in this collection are well-known works by well-known authors. These include "Life-Story" by Barth, "In the Heart of the Heart of the Country" by Gass, and "Pierre Menard, Author of Don Quixote" by Borges. Also, "A Pedestrian Accident" by Coover and "Game" by Barthelme. If you’re reading this post, chances are you’re already familiar with these authors. And you’re reading this post.There we [...]

      This was my first introduction to experimental fiction and I LOVED it. Landolfi, Ionesco, Borges, John Barth, Gass, Robbe-Grillet, Sarraute, Barthelme, Joyce Carol Oates, and many others. Great collection.

    • S. Wilson says:

      Anti-Story should be called an anthology of Non-Traditional Fiction, as most of the short pieces within aren't attempting to break new ground as much as they employ uncommon variations of structure or narrative. The few selections that actually deserve the label of Experimental Fiction are "How I Contemplated the World from the Detroit House of Corrections and Began My Life Over Again" by Joyce Carol Oates, "Welcome to Utah" by Michel Butor, and "In the Heart of the Heart of the Country" by Will [...]

      Este texto me es muy querido, puesto que logró recordarme que no todo está escrito. Y que vale la pena explorar nuevos caminos en torno a lo literario. Por supuesto, Cortázar y Borges no podían faltar en tanto autores fundamentales (en lo personal, pero también en este texto). Recomendabilísimo.

      This book was not my cup of tea, especially since I enjoy coffee. It's desire to be experimental has dated it and made it very irrelevant, guess that is why I found it in the discard pile.

      just super

      I am clearly not into experimental fiction. This is a sure fire cure for insomnia though.
