With a woman aboard, there’s trouble ahead. And what about a barricaded post office of Dublin, yet British, when it was occupied by rebels, ready to give their lives for the freedom of Ireland, and meanwhile a young British postwoman lurked in the toilet room? Without her, all of this would be simple: the brave Irish guys would shoot in the British, and so would beat their path to glory… But now their names should be not on the front page of the world history, but only on the pages of a mystification by Raymond Queneau (1903–1976), a writer, translator, essayist, the member of the Goncourt Academy.
