Saturday was a sad day, as on that day in 1982, a singular artist was lost to us.
I am writing of the author of "La Disparation" which was a book famous for what it did not contain.
Writing is difficult. But writing without your most common symbol - now that's hard work.
I found that writing this blog posting using his approach (known as a "lipogram") hurt my brain, and took way too long. And this is not many paragraphs at all.
How this author could fill a book without using so many important words is astounding - a major triumph.
If you think crosswords hard, you want to try writing lipograms !
