Abstract:

A frenetic doctor-narrator named Ferdinand endeavors to tell the reader about the allied bombardment of Montmartre in April 1944, "baroom!" and "baboom!" and all. The explosions are enough to make the furniture dance around the room, but Ferdinand attends mainly to his beloved cat, Bebert; his girlfriend, Lili; and Jules, a humpbacked local artist he despises.

As the destruction of Paris grows more surreal, Ferdinand's invective against Jules follows suit, and Ferdinand convinces himself that Jules is conducting the entire offensive from atop a windmill. Lili and Ferdinand head to the lower floors of the building to search for their cat, finding that their neighbors, including the Normances, an obese man and his undersized wife, have taken cover under furniture.
