OuLiPo grandaddy and one of the most important French writers ever. Surely one of, if not the most experimental. Georges Perec wrote A Void – the book written without the letter E – in which Anton Vowl (get it: A. Vowl) is missing. What’s amazing is it was translated from French to English, still without a single E. His shorter writings are more enjoyable to read, but all respect due.
