Spread the word, Perec is the greatest,
This review is from: Georges Perec: A Life in Words (Harvill Press Editions) (Paperback)
The world is a much more interesting place with writers like George Perec and David Bellos. If you havent read a George Perec book then just buy one and be prepared to wonder how someone could come up with one of the novels he devised nevertheless several mind blowing ideas. He is one of the most interesting writers around and this book captures the essense of being a French writer in the Left Bank during the 60's and 70's. It documents Perec's struggle to live his dream of supporting himself through his writing and is an inspiration for any wannabe writer. I am indebted to David Bellos who compiled this excellent biography and who, without his contribution, the English speaking world would never have had the chance to marvel at the creativity and brilliance of Perec.
