But lists of objects work in another way, too. I quickly became exhausted though I did have a little success. Their lives overlap and influence each other in ways so that not one person is the same after having lived in that building.

Life is an unclassified masterpiece, a sprawling compendium as encyclopedic as Dante’s Commedia and Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and, in its break with tradition, as inspiring as Joyce’s Ulysses. Abandoning novels feels sort of cruel, like letting a whole bunch of people just fade out of your life without trying hard enough to get to know them, so generally speaking if I get past the first chapter I won’t give up on a novel. I don’t want to give this book one or any stars: Chapters usually begin with a few paragraphs describing in great detail objects in a particular room- paintings, furniture, appliances, clothing, knick-knacks, etc.

Want to Read saving…. It’s easy to tell that for Perec, as for Rauschenberg, work—storytelling, word-painting—is a joy. This constraint affects even the title, which would conventionally be spelt Revenantes. Alcuni inquilini diventano presto antipatici e insopportabili, altri invece guadagnano l’affetto e la stima del lettore che non vede l’ora di tornare a curiosare nelle loro stanze.

Which is a shame, because I like the idea of Georges Perec, and I like the photo of him in the front here. In the face of this dichotomy, it’s unsurprising that the book displays an obsession with the different possible ways of ordering things.

Literary references out the wazoo, fun to spot if you enjoy that kind of game. I wouldn’t want its refreshing fragrance to fade away too fast. Life is an account of a single day in a Parisian apartment block. Don’t get me wrong instucciones, these lists are interesting, but do become tedious and reveal instruccionew little regarding the actual occupant of that particular room.

Just look at the appendices. Thirty years in, with georgez part in the plan complete, Winckler must fill his days too.

He conceives of a painting that will show all of the rooms at the front of No. Perec was obsessed with lists: You’d think this all would be too much but, despite the scattered variety – a veritable freakshow – the novel feels whole and every character and every story seems to have dw its place.

David Bellos wrote an extensive biography of Perec: After hearing ggeorges little anecdotes and life stories of a multitude of characters, after reliving moments of their lives through their stories, it is now time to say our goodbyes.

Seriously, why had I never heard of Perec before relatively recently thanks to GR?! The scene is repeated distinct Life: Partendo da un condominio, lo scrittore analizza ogni camera, ogni stanza, ogni inquilino fino a formare i 99 capitoli o sarebbe meglio dire le 99 stanze facenti parte del condominio.
