The nihilist, in rejecting the possibility that people can change intrinsically, when trying to telling a story, must revert to a thesis that, for him, is fundamentally alien. It’s an astounding thing to watch and has resulted in a number of comical attempts at prose, even if they were meant to be taken seriously. Personal change is the story’s sine qua non.
