@Alonealastalovedalongthe "Stories CANNOT be fundamentally ambigious." -- except for, well, the whole strand of fiction where ambiguitiy's not a problem: Barthelme, Coover, Dick, (Jane) Bowles, Acker, Barth, Saunders, etc. It's not as broad a vein as various genre categories but it's pretty deep?
@fncll I don't know all of those authors but of the ones I know, they definitely write in a deeply ambigious framework. I think that the fact that you can say that this is a narrow genre of stories, and not the vast landscape surrounding the peculiar towns of Definite Narrative and Definite Characters is telling of the fact that the meaning of these stories hasn't absorbed into culture.
