I found this article on an author (Jennifer Egan) who recently wrote a fictional story that is considered "Avant-Garde". It's a book of short stories and they are connected in various ways. She also made a chapter look like a PowerPoint Presentation. Read on if you're intrigued. I was. Although, I don't find this to be very Avant-Garde.

I don't know, I feel like it's ALL been done before. While her concept seems like a great read, I wouldn't say there's absolutely nothing like this. To Egan's defense, she doesn't want her work to be considered experimental, the Avant-Garde title is purely an accolade from reviewers. Maybe I will reserve my final opinon for after I read the book.
