Zazie dans le métro (1961)

Zazie dans le métro Plot

Zazie in the Metro — or simply Zazie, depending on the translation (original French title: Zazie dans le métro) — a French novel written in 1959, was the first major success of author Raymond Queneau. Zazie explores colloquial language as opposed to 'standard' written French, a distinction that is particularly marked in French, where correct language usage is governed by an official academy. The first word of the book, the neologism Doukipudonktan is a phonetic transcription of D'où qu'il pue donc tant ? (How come he stinks so much?). In the English version of the novel, this is rendered as Holifart watastink. In the movie version the English subtitle reads Whozit who stinks?
