About the Author

GEORGES PEREC (1936-1982) was a French novelist, filmmaker, documentary maker and essayist. In death he remains a member of Oulipo, the workshop of potential literature. He is most famous for the novels Life: A User's Manual and A Void.

Translator DANIEL LEVIN BECKER (b. 1984) is the youngest member of Oulipo, and only the second American to ever be so honored. He is a writer, translator and music critic, and reviews editor of The Believer. He is the author Many Subtle Channels: In Praise of Potential Literature (Harvard 2012).


"If you let it, the bundled text of dreams provides insight into [Perec's] most influential work ... Daniel Levin Becker rises and meets the challenge of honoring Perec's intuition."
--Library Journal (editor's pick)

"La Boutique Obscure ... is a work of considerable breadth and variety, and much of it is good fun, too. Any new bit of Pereciana is welcome, and fans will certainly appreciate and enjoy La Boutique Obscure." --The Complete Review

"The book captivates...occasionally Perec's dreaming mind alights on an image that condenses the pathos of an entire life." --The Rumpus
