THE AFTERLIVES OF GEORGES PEREC. Ed. by Rowan Wilken. Edinburgh University Press, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Oxford University Press. 320 pp. ISBN 9781474401241 In English.
Publisher's description: What do Perec's descriptions of the minutiae of everyday life reveal about our use of information and communications technologies? What happens if we read Life: A User's Manual as a toolbox of ideas for games studies? What light does the concept of the 'infra-ordinary' shed on social media? What insights does algorithmic writing generate for the digital humanities? What lessons can architects, artists, game-designers and writers draw from Perec's fascination with creative constraints? Through an examination of such questions, this collection takes Perec scholarship beyond its existing limits to offer new ways of rethinking our present.
