Queneau. Love the word I gleaned from adventures with him: whimsicrap, from the poem "Cleanliness." I wrote about it last year.http://mentalmultivitamin.blogspot.com/2006/01/whimsicrap.html
I read Queneau's We Always Treat Women Too Well. I thought it was the craziest book I ever read, until I finished off Cendrars' Moravagine a week or so ago. Those French writers make me dizzy.
Lee Smith's a wonderful Southern author! Enjoy! ;)
Maggie, oh yes. I'm a long time Lee Smith fan. I'm fortunate that my mother-in-law passed her copy on to me.MFS and Imani, sounds like I'll need to find the perfect time to read Queneau so that I'll have a chance at understanding what he's doing.
$1!!! That is a good shopping day!
Nice stack o'books! I've always wanted to read Lee Smith--let us know if you like it!
