Exercises in sheer artistic play,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 99 Ways to Tell a Story: Exercises in Style (Paperback)
Based as it is on Raymond Queneau's marvellous and erudite 'Exercise in style' this play of comic narratives on a simple set of variations spun out on a single scene is pure delight.
I defy anyone to remain unmoved at the sheer inventiveness of styles and variations.
Like a comic version of Beethoven's Diabelli Variations - or dare I say it: Bach's Goldberg Variations.
Whatever the associations go out and get it.
You will not be disappointed.
