Grand Gadsby!

For an astounding amount of months I had a wish... no, I had a vigorous notion, an ambition, to look into "Gadsby" - a short book by an unusual author. I say "unusual" in a particular fashion, as Wright had an odd ability or, perhaps, a gift.

This author was stubborn and would finally finish scripting it in 1939, around a mighty obstruction - a lack of particular icons, a particular uncial... Wright's story is a lipogram. And so is this post.
Try it. Warning - it is most difficult to avoid pitfalls!

It is akin to playing music without a "D" string on your guitar... How abominably frustrating!
