American fiction abounds in experimental narrative form, from Melville, Dos Passos, and Djuna Barnes through Faulkner, Kerouac, Barth, Kathy Acker, Jonathan Bayliss, and many others.  The Jonathan Bayliss Society invites proposals on American novels that engage in such experiment.

The roundtable will be comprised of several brief (8-10 minute) presentations.
