A reverse novel is one which the story is told in reverse chronological order, such as by presenting the chapters to be read in reverse order. It might seem that a crime novel told in such a way would be anti-climatic, or boring, but there is a highly-successful instance of such in English, namely, “The October List”, by Jeffery Deaver. So, are there any reverse novels in Esperanto?


I will go out on a limb and say: No, I don't think so.

  • I got a good laugh from your "going out on a limb" but I'm going to wait and see if anybody can respond more definitively or with more detail before I vote. :-) – Tomaso Alexander Nov 18 '16 at 15:41

Probably not, but there probably are "Stream of Consciousness" plays a la James Joyce...
