I've heard about Brown and it's experimental approach, but what kind of "experimental" are we talking about here?

[In reply to]
The whole "Idontusespacesorpunctuationinmytrainofthoughtwriting" kind of experimental, the whole David Foster Wallace(1) kind of experimental, or the whole

that doesn't rhyme and
I space it
kind of experimental?
What are we talking about here?
(1) you know, the kind that uses footnotes to take you into a totally different direction, like how you'd be reading about an ex-girlfriend's car accident only to get a nasty segway into a recipe on how to make fat-free prune veggie brownies, and then actually have to read it, like how you'd mix in one bowl 1/2c flour, 1/3c cocoa, 1/4t baking powder, 1/4t salt and then in a separate bowl mix 1/2c pureed prunes, 2/3c sugar, 1t vanilla, and 2 egg equivalents, then add dry to wet, put in an 8-inch square pan, and bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes or until edges look dry and start to pull away from the pan, that kind of experimental writing?
