Les Gestes et Opinions du Docteur Faustroll, Pataphysicien
Written by Alfred Jarry, this book which defies classification and in which Jarry elaborates his Science of Pataphysics (the 'science of imaginary solutions' which 'will examine the laws governing exceptions, and will explain the universe supplementary to this one...')
This extraordinary, Rabelaisian 'neo-scienfic novel' completely baffled even his closest friends in the literary world, and only a few chapters were published.

Mr. Elswick Tradesman and I were cycling along a delightful and very rural secondary road when we suddenly came into a blindingly dense haze. With some reservation we continued into the haze and were relieved to discover that it was very brief. As we emerged back into the sunlight, we instantly saw that there were large fields on either side of the road which were completely blanketed with an astoninshing conglomeration of what could only be called old junk.
Elswick could not resist and exclaimed that he intended to halt and investigate the scene which lay before us. I followed my companion on an angular dirt path which passed endless rows of 900 square foot corrals filled with strange and mysterious objects.
As we ventured into the fields I spotted a small item that I recognized. In my past I had possessed an article that had been constructed in the same manner and fashion as the example before me.
Recalling the pleasant circumstances which had surrounded me at that time as a young boy, I arranged, for a small price, to obtain this wonderful momento to bring back to my rooms.
This behavior was to be repeated many times during that day.

I don't know, I just got here myself.
