Gadsby: A Story of Over 50,000 Words Without Using the Letter "E"

Gadsby A Story of Over 50,000 Words Without Using the Letter "E" is a 1939 novel by the author Ernest Vincent Wright.
The plot revolves around the dying fictional city of Branton Hills, which is revitalized thanks to the efforts of protagonist John Gadsby and a youth group he organizes.
The novel is written as a lipogram and does not include words that contain the letter "e" at all,so just imagine how beautifully it must be written with so much difficulty.Though self-published and little-noticed in its time, the book is a favorite of fans of constrained writing and is a sought-after rarity among some book collectors.
