A professor at San Francisco State had us read Alain Robbe-Grillet's novel La Jalousie. It took us all a while to figure out the narrator. In a film class we saw Last Year at Marienbad; Robbe-Grillet wrote the script. I have never seen any of the movies that he directed. Alain Robbe-Grillet was born 100 years ago today, on 18-August-1922.
