What do boring stories and seemingly insignificant details reveal about the nature of narrative? How does narrativity manifest itself in forms such as stanzaic poetry and fictional dialogue? Narrative, Interrupted probes the limits of narrativity by focusing on the anti-linear, anti-causal and non-natural tendencies of literature. The book highlights the potential of literature to subvert the natural, cognitive frames of reading. It investigates that moment when a chain of events is disturbed by something that lies underneath: a feeling, an image, the shadow of the author.
