Be the first to ask a question about La Maison de rendez-vous. Lists with This Book. A vast multiplication of narrative possibilities. Robbe-Grillet has written many versions of this kind constant reconfiguration of pulp tropes over the years, but probably never so completely as here. This story of drug-running, mysterious bordellos, and murder isn’t just sequentially reframed to modify reader understanding, but lw broken apart down to a few archetypal characters and events that can be lz rearranged and reinterpreted until ever possibility has been exhausted.

Any A vast multiplication of narrative possibilities. Any one scene connects seamlessly, in the highly refined R-G manner rationally to those that precede and follow, but will completely be at odds with nearly anything else we’re told outside of that window.

In this way, this could be look at the internal revision process of forming a plotline like its immediate predecessor In The Labyrinthor perhaps, given its further point along Robbe-Grillet’s move towards post-modern erotica, an attempt to to recreate the internal rehearsals of scenes generated only by desire, flickering in and out of existence in the fitas like the Salvador Dali fantasy vision contained within The Dedalus Book of Surrealism.

Or perhaps it’s more like Italo Calvino’s “The Burning of the Abominable House”, wherein an insurance agent attempts to reconstruct all the possibilities for four people and a list of unseemly acts — except in R-G’s story, all these possibilities exist in dizzying multiverse simultaneity.

And yep, that sleazoid 60s Grove Black Cat cover is actually the one I’ve got, although in the typical R-G fashion of infinite build-up without true climax, everything here is pretty much suggestion and context, blanks to be filled-in, avoiding anything so literal and obvious as the cover-girl-in-chains there.

I bet that one moved some copies though. View all 3 comments. Este es el tipo de novela que es una experiencia en Fascinante. Nomeadamente as ruas de Hong Kong, a cultura japonesa e personagens inebriadas de prazer.

Confusing, repetitive, shallow, humorless except in conception and execution, fleeting, aain, like recalling a reoccurring nightmare you haven’t had yet. Sep 12, Jelka added it. Oct 17, David Leo rated it really liked it. A highly non-linear deconstruction of pulp fiction and orientalist tropes, and an grilleg on narrative coherence itself. Easier to admire than to love. An early 60s mystery novelette taking place in and around Hong Kong.

I appreciate the shifting descriptions of place, and the way that nothing remains certain. Best to read it in french though to get the full effect. I’ve read the English translation transcribed from the French. What I found fascinating about this, is that there aren’t any “chapter breaks” so you feel like there’s no end in sight, once you start, you cannot stop until you are done with the book completely.

I liken this unto the Russian Matryoshka doll also known as the “Matryoshka principle”. In America, the “Onion principle” would be more widely recognized herein, griplet the outer layer is peeled off an onion, a similar onion exists within. This concept grilleet plays into this mystery novel.

I’m pretty in awe of Robbe-Grillet. Even though he’s used all of these same tricks in his previous books, somehow five novels in they still seem fresh and mind-boggling. And if he’s used all these tricks before, he emphasizes different ones each time.

Here we seem the same scenes over and over, but from different vantage points, or with different causes, or with different outcomes, and often in completely different contexts, until we’re uncertain what has actually happened, who it’s happened t I’m pretty in awe of Robbe-Grillet.

Here we seem the same scenes over and over, but from different vantage points, or with different causes, or with different outcomes, and often in completely different contexts, until we’re uncertain what has actually happened, who it’s happened to, why it’s happened, and what if anything was just part of the play. It’s alaiin incredible how he lets scenes bleed into each other and how carefully he weaves his repetitions together.

He makes nothing explicit and demands your full attention and brainpower as a reader. Sep 18, Jury Razumau rated it really liked it. La Maison griolet rendez-vous was published a year after In C premiere, and while this is a random fact I needed to start the review, the book has a strikingly similar usage of repetitions and slow changes common in minimalist music.

Similarity to music probably looks lazy and standard, but Mr. Robbe-Grillet obviously doesn’t go for Toscanini-like brightness of moments and is much more devoted to Adorno-praised interest in grkllet structure of a piece. Sep 12, Zac rated it really liked it. Jun 06, Aaron rated it really liked it.

Jul 16, Rodrigo Alfonso rated it it was amazing Shelves: I really get into the shifting descriptions of place, and the way that nothing remains certain. The storyline pours to several different directions making a reader think what is real and what is only a reflection of real – an attempt that will not be successful anyways. Juan Opril rated it it was amazing May 30, Ewelina rated it it was amazing Oct 02, Borja Vargas rated it really liked it Apr 19, Bobby Sweatt rated it it was amazing Jul 18, John Ervin rated it it was amazing Nov 05, Fred Savard rated it really liked it Nov 29, Esteban rated it liked it Aug 02, Creolecat rated it liked it Aug 16, Mauricio Torres rated it it was ok Feb 24, Bukarski rated it liked it Mar 22, Mateusz rated it it was amazing Apr 23, Cindy rated it it was ok May 01, Finney rated it liked it Sep 21, Alain Robbe-Grillet was a French writer and filmmaker.


He was trained as an agricultural engineer. In the years Robbe-Grillet participated in service du travail obligatoire in Nuremberg where he worked as a machinist.

The initial few months were seen by Robbe-Grillet as something of a holiday, since in between the very rudimentary training he was given to operate the machinery he had free time to go to the theatre and the opera. His first novel The Erasers Les Gommes was published inafter which he dedicated himself full-time to his new occupation.

His early work was praised by eminent critics such as Roland Barthes and Maurice Blanchot. Around the time of his second novel he became a literary advisor for Les Editions de Minuit and occupied this position from until He died in Caen after succumbing to heart problems Style His writing style has been described as “realist” or “phenomenological” in the Heideggerian sense or “a theory of pure surface. Instead, one slowly pieces together the story and the emotional experience of jealousy in the repetition of descriptions, the attention to odd details, and the breaks in repetitions.

Ironically, this method resembles the experience of psychoanalysis in which the deeper unconscious meanings are contained in the flow and disruptions of free associations. Timelines and plots are fractured and the resulting novel resembles the literary equivalent of a cubist painting.
