In Solidarity with Jonathan Worth

From Mr. Worth, in England:
“So this week’s phonar class session had over 700 people “drop by” and reached over 42,000 people via Twitter ,  I’ve asked a few people for nominations of a book that “is notable/ inspiring/ seminal/ provocative,  in it’s narrative structure/approach or perhaps in it’s ‘discussion’ of narrative”.
“Would you possibly mind nominating a tome ?”
My response:
There are three that come to mind (two short stories and a hypertextual poem):
“Borges y Yo” (Borges and I), the extraordinary short story by Sr. Borges about him and him
“Las Babas del Diablo” (The Devil’s Spittle), Julio Cortázar’s short story about photography, literature and life, with shifting pronouns, translated as “Blow-Up” for the Antonioni movie that it did and did not inspire
“Cent mille milliards de poèmes” (One Hundred Thousand Billion Poems), by Raymond Queneau, the simplest and most beautiful of hypertext poems, from 1961
