Longlisted for the 2017 PEN Translation Prize One of Publishers Weekly's Best Books of 2016 "...rich, tragic, yet playful novel..." -- Nancy Kline, New York Times Book Review "Formally dazzling, playful and affecting, a new Oulipian classic." -- Lauren Elkin, author of Flaneuse and The End of Oulipo? This debut novel by mathematician and Oulipo member Michele Audin retraces the lives of French mathematicians over several generations through World Wars I and II. The narrative oscillates stylistically from chapter to chapter--at times a novel, fable, historical research, or a diary--locking and unlocking codes, culminating in a captivating, original reading experience. Michele Audin is the author of several works of mathematical theory and history and also published a work on her anticolonialist father's torture, disappearance, and execution by the French during the Battle of Algiers.
