a few years before his death in 1982, french novelist and notable oulipian georges perec published "le voyage d'hiver," a short story wherein a literature teacher discovers a slim book that may well rewrite the entire course of french literary history: hugo vernier's the winter journey. whereupon first glance vernier's work appears to borrow quite liberally from the likes of lautréamont, verlaine, mallarmé, rimbaud, and a host of others, it is, in fact, they that appropriated vernier - as his bo...more

There is nothing more fun than reading a literary work that is about books. Or the idea of books, and how it can lead to an adventure. The OULIPO group that was originally formed by Raymond Queneau is such a group that reads and writes book that becomes a game or even an quasi-science project. Georges Perec is considered the Shakespeare of the group, and therefore he leads the race with this specific book "Winter Journeys." Which, in return has caused a series of little books by writers in the O...more

A collection of related stories written by associates of the Oulipo - that group of formalist experimenters in literature. The first, eponymous, story is by Georges Perec, and each subsequent stories builds off that, and sometimes also off the other stories too. These shorts are, clearly, highly referential, they are often recursive (writing about writing (about writing...)), and many are written in a pseudo-academic style, which I guess is in the nature of the exercise's conceit.

One of the most elegantly, efficiently meta things he's done. Derivative because not to be would be thematically imperfect.

An entertaining pseudo-academic rabbit hole.

Georges Perec was a highly-regarded French novelist, filmmaker and essayist. He was a member of the Oulipo group. Many of his novels and essays abound with experimental wordplay, lists and attempts at classification, and they are usually tinged with melancholy.

Perec's first novel, Les Choses (Things: A Story of the Sixties) was awarded the Prix Renaudot in 1965.

In 1978, Perec won the prix Médicis...more
