L'Amour en Visites ((1897) English: Love in Visits) is a work by Alfred Jarry.

English translation

(tr. ‎Iain White, 1993)

Excerpt:

"In The Old Man of the Mountains, Jarry uses material from The Travels of Marco Polo, with details from Sir John Mandeville, Sebastian Munster and Pliny (The Manticore). He felt free to alter almost everything, however, and although all the events described are supposed to have occurred in the thirteenth century, they were neither contemporaneous, nor did they happen in the order given here."
