Featured: Walter Abish's Alphabetical Africa
Walter Abish, Alphabetical Africa
early New Directions paperback edition
"Walter Abish has dovetailed his novel within a Procrustean scheme that has the terrifying and irrefutable logic of the alphabet. Alphabetical Africa is in the line of writers such as Raymond Roussel, Raymond Queneau, Georges Perec and Harry Mathews, who have used constrictive forms to penetrate the space on the other side of poetry." -John Ashbery
