For those who missed Christian Bök's interview on CBC Radio's 'Q,' the following article provides a good recap of Eunoia's interesting U.K. success story and quotes from Bök's responses in the interview.
In the wake of Eunoia's popularity in the U.K. this fall, Canadian newspapers are once again uncovering the phenomenon of the univocal lipogram. Trace the fourteen-year saga in the following interviews with Christian Bök, the author of one of the very few works of avant-garde poetry to exhibit major mainstream appeal in our time.
A feature on BBC Radio and a British print run that sold out within hours marked Eunoia's rapid ascent to UK bestseller. The Times followed up on the book's continuing success with an interview with author Christian Bok. Of particular interest is Bok's account of writing the book (a seven-year process) while working full time, tutoring high school students and writing his PhD thesis.
