Double or nothing : a real fictitious discourse by Raymond Federman( )

37 editions published between 1971 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<Div><i>Double or Nothing</i> is a concrete novel in which the words become physical materials on the page. Federman gives each of these pages a shape or structure, most often a diagram or picture. The words move, cluster, jostle, and collide in a tour de force full of puns, parodies, and imitations. Within these startling and playful structures Federman develops two characters and two narratives. These stories are simultaneous and not chronological. The first deals with the narrator and his effort to make the book itself; the second, the story the narrator intends to tell, presents a young ma

Remond Namredef, a French expatriate, has returned to France after a disastrous decade in America, with the hope of publishing his novel about a novelist and 365 boxes of pasta. In a cafe in Paris, he meets a "professional listener," and, through a series of conversations, offers a loose account of his life that shows little respect for chronology. Federman's story is woven of fragments, branching out over a lifetime. His narrative spirals into a temporal abyss as he rummages in old memories marked with cabbages, plump breasts and the Final Solution

My body in nine parts : with three supplements & illustrations by Raymond Federman( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and French and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For over thirty years, Raymond Federman has been dazzling readers with his unique brand of "surfiction"'throwing words all over the page and inserting himself into every fiction, often through such zany alter egos as Moinous and Namredef. Now comes the greatest self-referential work of all as Federman spins all manner of tales off various parts of his own body, recounting his childhood in France, adult life in the US, Jewish heritage, and career as a writer, with no effort made to distinguish between fact and fiction, memory and imagination. Previously published in France as Mon corps en neuf parties, Federman's masterpiece is now available for the first time in English

The twilight of the bums : microfiction by George Chambers( )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than eighty riffs, rants, and microfictions by two old bums, er, that is, masters'perfectly complemented by the avant-comic artistry of T. Motley. Renowned throughout Europe and with books translated into fourteen languages, Raymond Federman is considered a major figure in world literature. In The Twilight of the Bums he teams with fellow-innovative fiction pioneer George Chambers (the two share the same birthday and shoe size) for a collaborative send-up of buddy-fictions from Waiting for Godot on down. At turns tender, hilarious, iconoclastic, and maddening, Twilight of the Bums is exemplary of the lettres-de-merde style Federman has designated "laughterature."
