I remember first reading Perec. I was enamoured with the concepts espoused by the Oulipo school, but after reading several of his works, I only really loved Life A User’s Manual and An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in Paris. The rest I understood and admired for their technical brilliance and formal creativity, but my heart couldn’t beat for them.
