Annotation:
In Perec's extraordinary tour de force--written entirely without the use of the letter "e"--a group of people die or are otherwise eliminated as a result of their inability to "name the unnameable," i.e. to use the letter "e." This novel is a classic text of the Oulipo, the French literary movement that produces works of art using formal restraints.
Author Bio
Georges Perec
Georges Perec is best known for his novels A VOID (1969) and LIFE: A USER'S MANUAL (1978). His 1978 work JE ME SOUVIENS consists of memories of his own life as a young man in the '50s. A gifted and innovative writer, and a pivotal figure in the French literary movement known as Oulipo, Perec died prematurely, four days before his 46th birthday.

Praise

Voice Literary Supplement
"Translator Adair has pulled off something of a Pierre Menard here, rendering the exact same book--the same vowel missing--only different."
