Reviewed: The Penguin Book of Oulipo

My review of Philip Terry’s The Penguin Book of Oulipo is now online at the Guardian. Along with Georges Perec (pictured), Italo Calvino, Harry Mathews et al, the review includes notable mention of novelists Christine Brooke-Rose and Anne Garréta, and of Lauren Elkin and Veronica Esposito’s 2013 The End of Oulipo?


The review appeared in the Guardian’s Review section, Saturday 21 December 2019.
