»eunoia« by christian bök (+)
read it online for free

the word ‘eunoia,’ which literally means ‘beautiful thinking,’ is the shortest word in english that contains all five vowels. directly inspired by the oulipo (l’ouvroir de littérature potentielle), a french writers’ group interested in experimenting with different forms of literary constraint, eunoia is a five-chapter book in which each chapter is a univocal lipogram – the first chapter has a as its only vowel, the second chapter e, etc. each vowel takes on a distinct personality: the i is egotistical and romantic, the o jocular and obscene, the e elegiac and epic.
