Reminds me of John Dos Pallos, who was similarly experimenting with language and the story-telling style in his U.S.A. trilogy.

************* In at least the first of the trilogy (that's all I read of it), I recall Passos's main experiment being the replacement of periods with "ands," ala Gertrude Stein. Passos was good friends with Hemingway before a bitter break occurred during the Spanish Civil Way. Hemingway eventually alienated almost all his friends.
 Tough lady and wife Mary hung on till the tragic end.
 His life is as interesting as his best novels.
