I'll give them this: they've managed to take every small thing that is fun and pleasurable about Oulipo and eliminate it. That takes some doing.

There were a couple articles, at least, that I enjoyed.

Recommends it for: no one
Leave it to American academics to ruin such an invigorating subject. Read Oulipo Compendium instead.

A well-designed little collection of writings whose parts are definitely better than the whole.
