Product description

Review

"Required reading for anyone interested in the evolution of this modern master" (Andrew Motion Observer)

"As a witty attack on consumerism Things is as much a parable of the Nineties as it is a story of the Sixties" (Sunday Times)

"Perec's first novel is a masterpiece of elegaic mockery" (Financial Times)

"Things, Perec's first novel, is an innovative, perceptive and even moving study of corrosive consumerism" (Independent)

"[A Man Asleep is] grimly obsessing...one turns the pages with unlikely fascination" (Euan Cameron Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description

Two brilliant, witty and subversive stories from the modern master - cult classics for the 60s generation
