"On connaît le célèbre apologue chinois : Tchouang-tseu rêve qu'il est un papillon, mais n'est-ce point le papillon qui rêve qu'il est Tchouang-tseu? De même dans ce roman, est-ce le duc d'Auge qui rêve qu'il est Cidrolin ou Cidrolin qui rêve qu'il est le duc d'Auge?

155 editions published between 1942 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce silence, cette nuit, ces rues étroites, tout disposait Pierrot à ne penser à rien de précis. Il regardait à droite, à gauche, comme pour accrocher quelque part ses petites curiosités, mais ne trouvait rien - tout au plus les enseignes, et qui ne valaient pas les billes de l'avenue de Chaillot. Il songea un instant à visiter le bobinard de cette sous-préfecture, mais il ne rencontrait personne pour le renseigner. Finalement il se perdit. Il traversait maintenant une petite banlieue ouvrière, avec des manufactures ici et là. Plus loin, Pierrot atteignit une route assez large, avec un double liséré d'arbres, peut-être nationale ? peut-être départementale ? Il marcha encore quelques instants. Il entendit tout près de lui un grand cri, un cri de femme, un cri de peur

The Bark Tree is an enchantment itself

73 editions published between 1948 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Queneau retells the primal Freudian myth of sons killing the father, he satirizes anthropology, folklore, philosophy, and epistemology, and deploys fractured syntax, hidden structures, self-imposed constraints, playful allusions, puns, and neologisms

110 editions published between 1960 and 2015 in 12 languages and held by 817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Impish, foul-mouthed Zazie arrives in Paris from the country to stay with her female-impersonator Uncle Gabriel. All she really wants to do is ride the metro, but finding it shut because of a strike, Zazie looks for other means of amusement and is soon caught up in a comic adventure that becomes wilder and more manic by the minute. Queneau's cult classic was made into a hugely successful film by Louis Malle in 1960. Packed full of word play and phonetic games, Zazie in the Metro remains as stylish and witty as ever."--Jacket

Stories & remarks by Raymond Queneau( Book )

33 editions published between 1981 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stories and Remarks collects the best of Raymond Queneau's shorter prose. The works span his career and include short stories, an uncompleted novel, melancholic and absurd essays, occasionally baffling "Texticles", a pastiche of Alice in Wonderland, and his only play. Talking dogs, boozing horses, and suicides come head to head with ruminations on the effects of aerodynamics on addition, rhetorical dreams, and a pioneering example of permutational fiction influenced by computer language. Also included is Michel Leiris's preface from the French edition, an introduction by the translator, and endnotes addressing each piece individually

L'oeil inconsciemment gris-bleu, la molletière galamment embobinée avec inconscience, le soldat Brû promenait naïvement avec lui tout ce qu'il fallait pour plaire à une demoiselle ni tout à fait jeune ni tout à fait demoiselle. Il ne savait pas. Julia pinça le bras de sa sœur Chantal et dit : Le v'là. Tapies derrière un entassement brut de bobines et de boutons, elles le regardèrent passer, muettes. []
