Apparently this is one WEIRD book.

Not only does this book not use the letter e, but it inspired Georges Perec to write A Void in French not using the letter e, which was then translated into English without the letter e also. Impressive!

Alex Thanks for the link. A Void looks like a far better plot than Gadsby.
