The founding text of pataphysics ("the science of imaginary solutions"), and one of the most quietly influential novels of the 20th century

Alfred Jarry is best known as the author of the proto-Dada play Ubu Roi, but this anarchic novel of absurdist philosophy is widely regarded as the central work to his oeuvre. Exploits and Opinions of Dr. Faustroll recounts the adventures of the inventor of “Pataphysics ... the science of imaginary solutions.”
