Purchase Hardcover
Purchase at Princeton Architectural Press
First published in book form in 1920 and translated here for the first time, Donogoo-Tonka or the Miracles of Science: A Cinematographic Tale is a mock film scenario written by the French novelist Jules Romains. The satirical plot concerns a famous geographer whose academic career is about to be derailed by the revelation that he has invented a city in South America. Through a hilarious sequence of events, a suicidal young man finds a new mission in life by undertaking to found the fictional city, thereby redeeming the error and reputation of the absentminded professor.
