The Tensor recently wrote about Georges Perec’s 1969 lipogrammatic novel, A Void. It’s not the easiest book to read, and it’s full of hilariously improbable plot twists (“OMG! You mean that all along you were the person I was searching for? Impossible!”).
Plus, this is Georges Perec. Check him out:
But I don’t know what’s cooler: that Perec wrote the original novel in French without using a single letter e, or that the English translation by Gilbert Adair preserves that. (Well, personally, I stopped keeping track around page 5.)
It’s a bit of a challenging read, plot-wise, but if might be worth your while if you really feel like getting your word nerd on.
