SKU: 9780241378458 Category:

A celebration of one of the most curious and playful literary groups of the twentieth century

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 via 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.
