The Penguin Book of Oulipo: Queneau, Perec, Calvino and the Adventure of Form

Author Philip Terry

£25.00

This title is not yet published, but can be pre-ordered

Description

Brought together for the first time, here are 100 pieces of ‘Oulipo’ writing, celebrating the literary group who revelled in maths problems, puzzles, trickery, wordplay and conundrums.

Featuring writers including Georges Perec, Raymond Queneau and Italo Calvino, it includes poems, short stories, word games and even recipes. Alongside these famous Oulipians, are ‘anticipatory’ wordsmiths who crafted language with unusual constraints and literary tricks, from Jonathan Swift to Lewis Carroll. Philip Terry’s playful selection will appeal to lovers of word games, puzzles and literary delights.
