Resumen: A consideration of attitudes towards style in contemporary narrativos leads to the conclusión that decorum and convention are often deliberately marked in order to draw attention to tbeir artificiality. In particular, in what are somctimes called postmodernist novéis, a critical stance is often adopted towards adequate or appropriate styles, so that anti-style, or a delibérate break with decorum or uniformity, highlights the fictitious nature of what is narrated. In the novéis of B.S. Johnson, a combination of styles and deviations from them show that there is no such thing as an authoritative narrative, not even the author's, and, while the conventional nature of language, style and narrative is foregrounded, it is implied that there is always some alternative to the inevitable fabrications and distortions that they involve
