A short breezy and nicely silly Parisian tale involving the young Zazie, her uncle, and other oddball adults that sometimes reads like an I Love Lucy slapstick episode. The best reason to read it is to realize how absurd and surreal and clownish the French language can get. I am judging from the nutty english translation and the interesting introduction. maybe you should buy both english and french versions and read them together.
