Sorry to come late to the dance. I commend a good book pertaining to this topic: "The True Story of the Novel" by Margaret Anne Doody. It seeks out the ancient origins and background of the official 18th Century "novel" in ancient Greece and Rome. It looks to Xenophon, Apuleius, the Satyricon of Petronius, etc. Many of these texts are available online at places like Gutenberg Project, etc. Best, Jim H.
