It takes an adventurous writer to throw tried-and-tested structures out the window and play with the infinite possibilities of text – and an even more intrepid reader to go along for the ride. Meet the savvy scribes who are breaking all the rules of traditional literary architecture, and are getting away with it in fine style.

Dibutuhkan seorang penulis petualang untuk melemparkan struktur yang diujicobakan ke dalam banyak hal dan bermain dengan kemungkinan teks yang tak terbatas – dan pembaca yang bahkan lebih pemberani untuk ikut dalam perjalanan. Temui para juru tulis cerdas yang berani melanggar semua aturan arsitektur sastra tradisional, dan lolos begitu saja dengan gaya elegannya.
