the french writer Georges Perec wrote an entire novel in which he never used the letter "e", called La Disparition (appropriately enough, "the disappearance") ; the letter e being the most-used letter of the french language, this is quite a feat. he also wrote a book called Les revenentes in which e is the ONLY vowel used.

sometimes writing exercises can lead to some brilliant prose (see also "Exercises de style" by Raymond Queneau, in which he presents the same short story told in a multitude of different styles : sheer genius) but i agree that this particular example is not necessarily the most brilliant available.

points for effort, though.
