I Remember – #843

I remember being pleased – why? – to learn that Georges Perec had died in Queensland.  Somehow I believe(d) it added some kind of literary legitimacy to my home state. (And an update to that – I was wrong!  He spent the last portion of his life in Queensland, before returning to France to spend his final days.  So even there, Queensland failed.)
