Typoo is a new kind of literary hero. His adventures are all the more real because his world is only paper and typewriter keys. He was born out of a typewriter keyboard and weaned on commas, cartes slashes and ampersands. His mother was little more than a pair of pregnant parentheses: ( ( O ) ) and his parents a symbol of the modern sex explosion.
Typoo is a new kind of cosmos and literary adventure wrought from the ancient keyboard of a 1915 Underwood typewriter.
