Quotes from Esercizi di stile. Sitting in the bus, up the back with the other non-conformists, I wrote many opening sentences and discarded those, concocted a structure and buried it under a dense blanket of autobiographical rhetoric which I consigned to the bonfire of my vanity, and considered simply silence, as the excruciating riposte.

One and a half stars. Of course, pure randomness without some kind of structure is a highly inefficient path toward literary art. Are they the right stories?

With a proto-hazy-lazy-impreciseness-of-language-use characteristic of much postmodern French writing, Queneau has here managed to craft recycle a banal, third-rate chronicle of styles largely explored over two decades earlier by the much more talented though similarly unmeritedly self-enamored Joyce.

Why, then, does Queneau not similarly abuse his examples of genres of writing, or metaphors?

I’m not trying to be critical here, but simply trying to explain why I don’t see much in this book that speaks to me. One of the works of art was ’10 million years’, basically all the numbers from 1 to 10 million written in 10 fat books. Non me lo sarei mai aspettato, sinceramente. Then he went and sat down in a spare seat.

Give me unrelenting displays of cruelty and abuse and subsequent coping mechanisms whose effects are just as vicious as their causes, and sprinkle them with laugh out loud moments clouded by the memories of the aforementioned atrocities.

A more knowing smile involves greater purchase on the lips of one’s target or oneself. Esedcizi great is Eserciizi actually manages to transcend his own si restrictions by remaining punctiliously within each piece, at all times. One is awed by the possibility of ways of looking at things.
