5.0 out of 5 stars Oulipian hyper-novel, 14 July 2013
Jan De Meyer "jazzhermit" (Belgium) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Winter Journeys (Atlas Anti-Classics) (Hardcover)
In 1979 Georges Perec published a brilliant short story "Le Voyage d'hiver", about what oulipians call anticipatory plagiarism. In 1992 Jacques Roubaud published a sequel "Le Voyage d'hier", followed in 1999 by Hervé Le Tellier's "Le Voyage d'Hitler". 18 more stories would follow, including "Le Voyage d'Hoover", "Le Voyage du ver", "Le Voyage des verres", "Le Voyage d'Enfer" etc., creating a fascinating hyper-novel, to which most of the living Oulipo members have contributed.

About half of this material is not yet available in French, but thanks to Ian Monk, who has translated the majority of these stories, we can all read them in English now. Anybody acquainted with Oulipo will relish this hyper-novel, and for those who wish to get to know Oulipo, "Winter Journeys", probably the most all-embracing expression of Oulipo's creative potential, is an ideal introduction.
