The literary world has lost a great innovator: Jonathan Baumbach died March 28 at age eighty-five, according to his son.

Baumbach was known for his experimental novels, which featured (among other stylistic moves) a hero who was a baby; dueling narrators; and novels-within-novels.

But he was also celebrated for co-creating the Fiction Collective, a publishing house that aimed to help publish other experimental authors.

Read Baumbach’s obituary in the New York Times.
