That sounds like Robbe-Grillet. For complete insurance against having any fun, I suggest a combined dose of Robbe-Grillet and the late Marguerite Duras.

************* Haha! There is still a power to Jealousy that is hypnotic, a moth-drawn-to-fire sort of fascination. A friend of mine knew a musician named Tim Hardin. He once played a short piece with all the notes and then played it again with unplayed notes. The emotion lay in the second method. Robbe-Grillet is good at unplayed notes. What is left out imparts intensity. It builds instead of spilling over the pages. The minimal and restrained dialogue accents the killing of the centipede. The description of the positioning of the banana trees, the natives building the bridge, and the worn paint on the woodwork are all juxtaposed against what is not stated.
