A Story of Over 50,000 Words Without Using the Letter “E”

Except for the author’s name.

THE ENTIRE MANUSCRIPT of this story was written with the E type-bar of the typewriter tied down; thus making it impossible for that letter to be printed. This was done so that none of that vowel might slip in, accidentally; and many did try to do so!

  1. The novel A Void, by George Perec, was written first in French without using the letter “e” and more remarkable it was also translated into English also without using the letter “e.”
