Exercises in Style (1948)
by Raymond Queneau
Exercises in Style is the retelling of the same two paragraph story in 99 different styles. A man is on a bus, another man steps on his shoes, he begins a confrontation and quickly abandons it in favor of occupying a recently vacated seat. Some time later, an acquaintance tells him to add a button to his jacket.
The styles are legion: Surprises, Dreams, Hesitation, Precision, Visual, Auditory, Gustatory, Apheresis, Reported Speech, Insistence, Ignorance. The list goes 99 deep.
