A 250 page lipogram – a book written without using words that contain a specific letter, in this case the letter ‘e’. No “the” no “he” or “she”, no words that end in “ed”. Really incredible!
The story is pretty interesting too, and surprisingly fluid to read, given the constraints. The story does, however, contain many references to Paris in the late 60s, which makes the story a bit challenging if you don’t know them.
