After I finish Life, I plan to read another book by Perec. I’m just not sure which one. A Void looks interesting but I don’t know if I can make it all the way through a book that doesn’t contain the letter “e.”
“E” is my favourite letter.
A Man Asleep intrigues me — I’ve got a thing for stories about sleep — but this review on the amazon.co.uk site stopped me up. A “reader from London” says (with great enthusiasm, mind you) that:
Everyone I know who has read this book has been stricken with near-clinical depression!
He or she gives the book five stars.
