Alphonse Allais has been described as the greatest humorous writer ever. Faber Finds offers this rare book as a tribute not only to Alphonse Allais but also Miles Kington, two great humorists in tandem.

Alphonse Allais has been described as the greatest humorous writer ever. In the words of Lisa Appignanesi, 'Allais was a consummate absurdist. From an ordinary phenomenon, simple sentiment or situation, he would logically deduce the looniest, most macabre and most unexpected result. His humour kept all Paris, high and low, waiting breathlessly for the paper which would carry his next tale.

The World of Alphonse Allais. Alphonse Allais has been described as the greatest humorous writer ever. In one of his Independent pieces Miles Kington once referred to a volume of Edward Lear's limericks translated into French.

Alphonse Allais (1854-1905), was probably the first man in history to paint an abstract picture. He was also a humourous writer. This is a collection of his best and funniest stories translated and introduced by Miles Kingston, columnist for The Independent, whose own books include the series on Franglais.

Alphonse Allais (20 October 1854 – 28 October 1905) was a French writer and humorist, who was born in Honfleur, Calvados, and who died in Paris. He is the author of many collections of whimsical writings. A poet as much as a humorist, he cultivated the verse form known as holorhyme, . made up entirely of homophonous verses, where entire lines are pronounced the same. For example: Par les bois du djinn où s'entasse de l'effroi, Parle et bois du gin, ou cent tasses de lait froid. Dec 12, 2018 Stef Smulders rated it liked it.

Selected, translated and introduced by. MILES KINGTON. Alphonse Allais was born on October 20th 1854 and died on October 28th 1905. He was probably the finest humorous writer France has ever produced. I hope you enjoy this selection of his pieces. And that, in an ideal world, would be all the introduction that Alphonse Allais needed. But this is not an ideal world (if it were, we might not need humour) and seventy years after his death Allais is still an almost totally obscure figure in the English-speaking part of it. He has never been translated into English.

In one of his Independent pieces Miles Kington once referred to a volume of Edward Lear's limericks translated into French. Not an easy task, you might think, and in translating Alphonse Allais into English, Miles Kington set himself a similar challenge. He carried it off with panache. As Max Harrison said in The Times, '... has done a difficult job well, even preserving some of Allais's puns'. Alphonse Allais has been described as the greatest humorous writer ever. In the words of Lisa Appignanesi, 'Allais was a consummate absurdist. From an ordinary phenomenon, simple sentiment or situation, he would logically deduce the looniest, most macabre and most unexpected result ... His humour kept all Paris, high and low, waiting breathlessly for the paper which would carry his next tale ...' On first publication, in 1976, Clive James in the Observer said 'Allais has been dead 70 years but his mocking tone ensures him a permanently relevant after-life'. And John Sturrock in the New Statesman, 'Allais stands, along with Jarry, at the head of the most dazzling and highly educated tradition of French humour, as witty as it is whimsical'. Faber Finds offers this rare book as a tribute not only to Alphonse Allais but also Miles Kington, two great humorists in tandem.
