''Gadsby'' is a long, fictional 1939 book by Mr. Wright.

John Gadsby transforms his tiny town, Branton Hills, with it starting off as a small town, not doing much, but a bunch of youth try to stand up for it and show adults that youth can aid a town in growing into a thriving city. Gadsby, Champion of Youth, assists in this, shaking down rich widows for cash to furnish a library, hospital, night school and so on. This flip-flop, from "why, our town ought to build a..." to scrambling for funds to build it, occurs on many occasions with distinct things showing up. Kids go off to war, but show up again without injury. Gadsby winds up as mayor of Branton Hills, watching his kids marry off and grow his family with grandkids; Mrs. Gadsby also plays a part in Branton Hills' growth.

Oh, and also, it omits a particular symbol that is usually found in books.

This is not [[Literature/TheGreatGatsby that book about Jay Gatsby]].
----
!!Gadsby contains:
* [[CharacterTitle Individual Nomination]]: ''Gadsby'' paints John Gadsby's activity.
* [[ConstrainedWriting Writing with Constraints]]: It's a lipogram, avoiding that glyph which follows "D" in Latin writing distribution. Wright brings strain upon his writing, as ''Gadsby'' is only in past actions; only a minority of actions do not apply that 'post-D' symbol (unusual conjugations, such as 'saw' or 'built', assist in that); thus, Wright jots phrasings with 'ing' and portrays accounts with many 'did <action word>' or 'had <action word>'.
* DyingTown: This is how ''Gadsby'' starts, but John Gadsby assists in Branton Hills's growth.
* [[LemonyNarrator Citrusy Narrator]]: Mocks his circumlocutions now and again.
* [[SelfDemonstratingArticle Idiosyncrasy-Displaying Information]]: Such a task did [[{{Wikipedia}} a particular wiki]] discuss about clarifying ''Gadsby''[='=]s analysis and information. Various authors built support for abolishing a lipogrammatic form of writing, and so it now subsists that that singular symbol functions candidly. Although ''Gadsby''[='=]s datum shows no lipogrammatic quality, that old form of writing is still conspicuous in through 'history'.
* [[SuddenlySignificantCity Now Significant City]]: Branton Hills winds up with city status.
* WorldWarI: All action occurs in or around Branton Hills, but its young boys do go on a trans-Atlantic trip to fight in World War I.

Its plot is that this guy, Jay Gadsby, transforms his tiny town, Branton Hills. It starts off as a small town, not doing much, but a bunch of youth try to stand up for it and show adults that youth can aid a town in growing into a thriving city. Gadsby, Champion of Youth, assists in this, shaking down rich widows for cash to furnish a library, hospital, night school and so on. This flip-flop, from "why, our town ought to build a..." to scrambling for funds to build it, occurs on many occasions with distinct things showing up. Kids go off to war, but show up again without injury. Gadsby winds up as mayor of Branton Hills, watching his kids marry off and grow his family with grandkids; Mrs. Gadsby also plays a part in Branton Hills' growth.
