The, the Book - home page


THE is great -- have you seen Rory MacBeth's Alphabetical Bible? or the minimal poems of Aram Saroyan? Two of my favorites which this reminds me of. I dig the austerity of the book as well, from the cover to the type. Oh, also check out Craig Dworkin's PARSE. Blow your mind. - Kenneth Goldsmith - (wikipedia page for Kenneth Goldmith)


Best book -the book , It is your THE, the book. Picked it up on Amazon. Note: Had a problem With All The BIG WORDS. SAW it a few years back when it was in the" HUNDREDS" - Russell Smoll

Articulate and Pithy
December 1, 2011

Of course I'm prejudiced because I hold the copyright for this book, but I must say that Chavid (the ch pronounced like challa, the bread) Dadwick (pronounced like dodwick) has crafted a most intriguing series of pages here. As Dadwick is so shy, I agreed to contact a publisher for him after carefully reading each the. As he says in the book, "The the the the the the the the the." What more can I add except to say it's a pleasure to have this short book on my living room table to delight and amuse my friends.

A Publisher's Viewpoint
December 5, 2011

I proudly published this unique novelty book and the product description won't be up here for a while so I'm posting it here. The is the Pet Rock of books. The back side of the dust jacket has the inscription, "Book One in the Article Series." Except for the copyright and title pages, dedication to Polybius, and the epigraph ("When a thing is funny, search it for a hidden truth." - George Bernard Shaw), the only word in this book is "the" arranged in sentences forming paragraphs.
