9780099541660: Things: A Story of the Sixties with A Man Asleep (Vintage Classics)

Things: A Story of the Sixties is the story of a young couple who want to enjoy life, but the only way they know how to do so is through ownership of 'things'. Perec's first novel won the Prix Renaudot and became the cult book for a generation.

In A Man Asleep, a young student embarks upon a disturbing and exhaustive pursuit of indifference, following his experience in non-existence with relentless logic.

Review:

"Required reading for anyone interested in the evolution of this modern master" (Andrew Motion Observer)

"As a witty attack on consumerism Things is as much a parable of the Nineties as it is a story of the Sixties" ( Sunday Times)

"Perec's first novel is a masterpiece of elegaic mockery" ( Financial Times)

" Things, Perec's first novel, is an innovative, perceptive and even moving study of corrosive consumerism" ( Independent)

"[ A Man Asleep is] grimly obsessing...one turns the pages with unlikely fascination" (Euan Cameron Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description:

Two brilliant, witty and subversive stories from the modern master - cult classics for the 60s generation
