absurdism, Alphonse Allais, pataphysics

Darkly humorous, this pataphysical tale was celebrated by André Breton & the Surrealists, and hailed by the Oulipo. Allais's clever paradox is a prime example of Alfred Jarry's inspired "science of imaginary solutions." This unique edition is illustrated throughout and includes a most Allaisian introduction by Doug Skinner, as well as notes on the text.
