Alain Robbe-Grillet, Rest in Peace
Passing away in the last couple of days was Alain Robbe-Grillet. The title of his novella Into the Labyrinth was appropriate. He can be hard to read. He was always more a theorist than a writer. He actually plays better, to my mind, through the prism of Alain Resnais in films like Last Year at Marienbad, which he wrote.
