I reread Robbe-Grillet's Djinn, a first class work of metafiction, which is to say a novel about the false, the artificial, the misleading, the phony, the bogus, the specious, which is to say fiction itself. This is the subject matter. It's a novel about fiction. Entrancing. The form is the content, as in the case of music. Highly recommended.
