Eunoia: Beautiful Thinking

Chris­ti­an Bok’s Eun­oia sounds like an inter­est­ing read. The BBC has a review of the book, com­plete with some (inter­est­ing) excerpts:

Eun­oia is the shortest word in Eng­lish con­tain­ing all five vow­els – and it means “beau­ti­ful think­ing”. It is also the title of Cana­dian poet Chris­ti­an Bok’s book of fic­tion in which each chapter uses only one vow­el.

Mr Bok believes his book proves that each vow­el has its own per­son­al­ity, and demon­strates the flex­ib­il­ity of the Eng­lish lan­guage.
