Quandary Resolution 3165
roman-fleuve, infanticide, prepradial, irrefragable


In volume sixteen of his seemingly interminable roman-fleuve, the author has committed the irrefragable error of ascribing a postprandial infanticide (of Jean-Francois, the great-great-grandson of Pierre-Michel) to the ingestion of a petite madeleine laced with strychnine, when in volume three he had informed us that the child found strychnine unpalatable and, besides, partook of such cakes only preprandially.
