Unreeling like a series of film clips recorded during a stroll through Paris, Raymond Queneau’s Hitting the Streets is wickedly funny. It is also a bittersweet meditation on the effects of time and memory. Hitting the Streets is Queneau’s love letters to Paris – a Paris that is always in the process of becoming obsolete. This lively, idiomatic version is the first complete translation available in English.
