Queneau's tragicomic masterpiece which retells in an array of styles the primal Freudian myth of sons killing the father.
Queneau satirizes anthropology, folklore, philosophy, and epistemology while spinning a story as appealing as a fairy tale about a land where it never rains and a bizarre festival is held every Saint Glinglin's Day.
