Here with excerpts and links to excerpts from the flash-fiction novel Suicide by Language by Gregory Vincent St. Thomasino.
This novel was inspired by the work of Alain Robbe-Grillet. In the edition of The Erasers that I have (trans. Richard Howard) there is a quotation by Sophocles:
“Time that sees all has found
you out against your will.”
