This trudging narrative unfolds like a slow death in an austere landscape. Creaking, croaking, caliginous, it is instructive only as a model of how to turn the written word into toxic treacle. To be fair, perhaps its decided lack of flow and navigability is a result of translation difficulties, idiomatic expressions without clear cross-cultural parallels. Though it becomes clear upon reading this exercise in pain it is more due to authorial intent and preoccupation. As an example of the nouveau roman style of writing for which Robbe-Grillet militated this work embodies the doctrine he espoused; in regard to the novel he argued against "several obsolete notions" such as character, story and depth. To this end he has succeeded ten-fold. The Erasers is replete with repetitive banal prose while expressly lacking in the obsolete notions of character, story and depth. If your desire is to write prose that will compel the world to bare its fangs in seething repulsion while hurling jagged stones at you, let this novel be your guide. As an anti-story tutorial this work is priceless.
