François Caradec (1924-2008) joined the Oulipo in 1983. He was a biographer of Lautréamont, Jarry, Roussel, Allais, and others, as well as a historian, publisher, poet, novelist, and radio personality—most recently on the show Les Papous dans la tête alongside Oulipians Jacques Jouet and Hervé Le Tellier. His diverse bibliography includes “prose comic strips,” multiple dictionaries of slang and a dictionary of gestures, and a biography of his dog.
