Jose Luis Castillejo (1930-2014) described himself as a "modern writer". In 1969 he self-published The Book of I's, which was a book that consisted entirely of the letter 'i', printed repeatedly on several hundred pages. He said that he wrote it to "end the torrent of words we call literature." It's read below by Fernando Millan. (He begins reading the book shortly after the 1-minute mark).

In 2001, Castillejo explored the letters T, L, and A, with his release of TLALAATALA. It's read again by Millan.

As you might guess, writing wasn't Castillejo's day job. He earned his living as a diplomat, serving as General Consul of Spain in Stuttgart, as well as Spanish ambassador to Nigeria and Benin.

Both remind me of an old vinyl record with a skip in the grooves. Someone needs to bump the needle to move it beyond the skip.
