All these years I've assumed the title of the work was a thousand and ONE avant-garde plays, only to realize this morning that it's actually One Thousand Avant-Garde Plays. Somehow the Arabian Nights crept in there.

When I was a kid I always heard that as 1,001 Arabian KNIGHTS.

Have you ever read Inagaki Taruho's "One Thousand And One Second Stories"? I have a feeling that Kenneth Koch would have really enjoyed it; Taruho was a Japanese surrealist and that book is filled with short short stories that involve "Mr. Moon" getting into fisticuffs with earthlings. Great stuff!
