Chongqing Express — Georges Perec

Lawrence Weschler should do a "convergences" piece on these images, no? (Second one comes from this article.)

"It is always the one against the many, with the enemy fungible and all the world a weapon: not just axes and arrows, the 3-Section Whip and the 8 Chop Swords, but fans and fabric shears, benches and banisters, rags and roofing and rope." —Parkus Grammaticus

Dizzyhead Jason informs me: It's Georges Perec week over at Dennis Cooper's blog—some links:

1) A quick bio.
2) GP on the "infra-ordinary."
3) Some thoughts of his on the art of the crossword.
4) The amazing chess-move structure of his novel Life A User's Manual.
5) A sample of his lipogram in e, A Void.

There's much more, so check it out if you're interested...

Thanks for the tip. And in re your pair of Rousellian articles this week, an NPR story (yesterday, day before?) on a woman who paints with maggots, and teaches children to do same, seemed to make a trine with the other two.
