About the Author: Raymond Queneau

Novelist, poet, and critic Raymond Queneau, was born in Le Havre in 1903, and went to Paris when he was 17 For some time he joined Andr Breton s Surrealist group, but after only a brief stint he dissociated himself Now, seeing Queneau s work in retrospect, it seems inevitable The Surrealists tried to achieve a sort of pure expression from the unconscious, without mediation of the author s self aware persona Queneau s texts, on the contrary, are quite deliberate products of the author s conscious mind, of his memory, and his intentionality.Although Queneau s novels give an impression of enormous spontaneity, they were in fact painstakingly conceived in every small detail He even once remarked that he simply could not leave to hazard the task of determining the number of chapters of a book Talking about his first novel, Le Chiendent usually translated as The Bark Tree , he pointed out that it had 91 sections, because 91 was the sum of the first 13 numbers, and also the product of two numbers he was particularly fond of 7 and 13.

    Being or nothing, that is the question Ascending, descending, coming, going, a man does so much that in the end he disappears Raymond Queneau, Zazie in the Metro A Raymond Queneau funny bone tickler, a witty zazissle through Paris with Uncle Gabriel hosting visiting Zazie, the ever oh so very loveable little wisecracker who oh so very much wishes to ride the city s Metro And I was

    I m going to hazard a crazy guess as to what this book is really about besides the immediately recognizable themes which others have analyzed and canonized, themes such as the bizzareries Zazie encounters in the metropolis and the dazzling use of slang in the narrative.But before I hazard my crazy guess, you ll have to be patient with me while I do a little hypothesizing, while I attempt to

    Another one which I read because of a book group selection, this time in the Forgotten Classics group It is a book that is impossible to distance completely from the film it inspired, a wild playful comic adventure set in a Paris netherworld that clearly owes much to Joyce The language is full of invention, with hybrid words and all manner of allusions and wordplay this must have made the translator

    Zazie was written by French writer Raymond Queneau 1903 1976 and published in 1959 It s well known for it s use of language A sort of slang known as colloquial or Neo French For example, the words who is it are written whozit The book is loaded with this type of language, later referred to in France as Zazie Speak But to the average reader it s a farce The escapades of a pre teen girl Zazie while visiting he

    Look, it s quite simple really if you don t love this book then there is something fundamentally wrong with you My suggestion would either be medical help or, should you wish to save yourself and the world some time and effort, throwing yourself under the nearest Metro.

    I finally got around to finishing this, and it was a whole lot of fun 1 For its linguistic ingenuitya With respect to its highly accurate I assume transcription of Parisian slang That brought back memories and a serious case of itchy feetb With respect to the wonderful wordplay in which he engaged I m sure I missed most of this because my French isn t good enough2 For its characters they are, as it were, pretty great.a With r

    Zazie s gone downtown and Zazie s gone all around Zazie has turned the entire Paris upside down in no time Are you a homo sessuell Do I look like a fruit Recently I ve watched the movie adaptation of the book Of course the film is quite different from Raymond Queneau s novel but Louis Malle made a special stress on the weird visual scenes so he managed to make me see all the events in a new light

    This book is so funny A perfect antidote to the Hamsun I read immediately before Though I must say that it seriously tested the limits of my colloquial French I thought I wasn t too bad at French slang, but this book put me firmly in my place My edition appeared to be intended for French high school students, and there were many useful footnotes explaining the less obvious pieces of argot, obscure references, and neologisms Queneau loves makin

    Q Besides a lifespan that encompassed the first years of the 20th century through the late 1970 s, first hand knowledge of the consequences of both world wars, a lifelong devotion to both wife and literature, a large body of work that spanned many genres, with a love of wordplay, humor, high diction, multilinguistic prose, a great attention to structure and experiments in form, and late recognition as one of the most important and influential writers i

    This short whimsical novel from the Parisian polymath and co founder of the Oulipo isn t representative of his phenomenal talent, but is a tittersome romp through a cinematic Paris of the 1950s with the acid tongued Zazie the charming misfit at its core.The humour was, for its time, subversive, with its foul mouthed heroine, the consistent references to homossesuality and the playfully childish words spelled phonetically throughout the text There is no plot as
