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."--BOOK JACKET+-+69553679651781ocn060514933book20050.56Pinget, RobertTrioFictionTrio marks the first time these three shorter Pinget works are collected in a single volume. From the sublime surrealism of Between Fantoine and Agapa, through the Faulknerian take on rural life in That Voice, to the musical rhythm and flow of Passacaglia, this collection charts the varied career of one of the French New Novel's true luminaries. The space between the fictional towns of Fantoine and Agapa is akin to Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha County: an area where provincialism is neither romanticized nor parodied; where intrigue--often violent intrigue--confronts the bucolic ideal held both by insiders and outsiders; and where reality is shaped not by events, but by talk and gossip, by insinuation and conjecture. Written over the course of his career, these three novels are by turns hilarious and dark, surreal and painstakingly accurate; together they demonstrate the consistent quality of Pinget's versatility+-+33593291061611ocn043318298book20000.66Albert-Birot, PierreThe first book of Grabinoulor"Smart, joyous, playfully philosophical and completely without despair, the novel follows the character Grabinoulor - "the happiest man in the world" - a child-like, satyric, and comical Parisian as he visits other planets, travels through time, and finds poetry wherever he goes."--BOOK JACKET+-+K0973291061598ocn796230191book19580.56Queneau, RaymondExercises in styleCriticism, interpretation, etcHumorQueneau uses a variety of literary styles and forms in ninety-nine exercises which retell the same story about a minor brawl aboard a bus1361ocn051203970book20030.63Queneau, RaymondWitch grassFictionSeated in a Paris cafe, a man glimpses another man, a shadowy figure hurrying to the train.
