Inappropriate Anagrams is a book of anagram-inflected biographical poems, which the author calls "shenanagrams." The shenanagram is a new form of literary art – one that recognizes a heretofore unappreciated type of anagram and permits its use as legitimate expression, while paying homage to literary and wordplay precedents. These include the poetry of e. e. cummings, Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll, and Raymond Queneau, and the prose of Christian Bök, Georges Perec and Gertrude Stein.
Readers are encouraged to create their own shenanagrams. Rules are listed on page 85 of Inappropriate Anagrams.
