Witch Grass by Raymond Queneau

Book Description

Seated in a Paris cafe, a man glimpses another man, a shadowy figure hurrying for the train: Who is he? he wonders, How does he live? And instantly the shadow comes to life, precipitating a series of comic run-ins among a range of disreputable and heartwarming characters living on the sleazy outskirts of the city of lights. "Witch Grass" (previously titled "The Bark Tree") is a philosophical farce, an epic comedy, a mesmerizing book about the daily grind that is an enchantment itself.

Books By Author Raymond Queneau

Exercises in Style by Raymond Queneau Exercises in Style, Paperback (September 2013)

'A pointless anecdote told in 99 different ways, or a work of genius in a brilliant translation by Barbara Wright. In fact it's both. Endlessly fascinating and very funny.' Philip Pullman This special edition contains a foreword by Umberto Eco with an essay by Italo Calvino.

Hitting the Streets by Raymond Queneau Hitting the Streets, Paperback (July 2013)

A poetic love note to Paris by a cult twentieth-century French literary figure.

Sunday of Life by Raymond Queneau Sunday of Life, Paperback (October 2012)

With a cast of eccentric characters, amusing incidents and an uplifting tone, The Sunday of Life - its title playfully alluding to Hegel's theory of history - is a scintillating novel which showcases Queneau's trademark punning, sly wit and delight in the absurdity of people and situations.

Pierrot Mon Ami by Raymond Queneau Pierrot Mon Ami, Paperback (September 2009)

"Pierrot Mon Ami was perhaps Queneau's masterpiece . . . This unlikely guru exerted a major influence on a new avant-garde (notably on Georges Perec, who was devoted to him). But if there was a sage in Queneau he never imparted his wisdom more touchingly than in Pierrot Mon Ami." Times Literary Supplement
