French Verbs Dead

Via Humanophone, I see a report that a French writer has published a 233 page novel that doesn't use a single verb. It's not currently translated into English, although that may change. Interesting quote from the writer:

"The verb is like a weed in a field of flowers. You have to get rid of it to allow the flowers to grow and flourish. Take away the verbs and the language speaks for itself."
To which I say, "Je vous demande pardon?"
