Life: A User's Manual (Verba Mundi #18) (Paperback)
Perec finished Life A User’s Manual just a few short years before he died in 1982. It is truly a high point to finish such an epic and complete a novel -- not to mention see it published -- and to cap a lifetime of literary genius. Most known before Life was A Void, his funny, witty novel written completely without the letter “e.” Life is structured after a puzzle-maker but expands into the lives and rooms of an apartment block of Paris. after 20 years, Godine has updated this masterpiece (with a beautiful cover as well as corrections to the translation). You will love this book!— Nick
