Ella Minnow Pea

Ella Minnow Pea: A Progressively Lipogrammatic Epistolary Fable by Mark Dunn (MacAdam/Cage, 2001) Not as clever or amusing as it imagines itself to be, but still an effective satire on government, dogma and the corrupting influence of absolute power. With the loss of language (denoting civil liberties), even the most eloquent of societies quickly degenerates.
