Here’s an excerpt from Jacob Singer’s interview:

“It’s innovative because my take on the world is what it is, and what I need to say doesn’t much concern sentiment or even rationality. Though I admire traditional narrative very much, especially in the excellent detective novel, I can’t write that way because it doesn’t serve my project. I’m not messing around with form as a kind of game, but I’m expressing odd and overlooked things, sometimes fierce and lonely things, and it takes an unusual approach to language and structure to get at those things. I’m overturning and looking under things, coming at them from oblique angles, and play with language and structure helps that happen. There’s play and pleasure and freedom in it too, but the innovation doesn’t exist for its own sake.”
