Ian Monk's Homage to Georges Perec

Below is a link to Ian Monk's homage (in English) to Georges Perec, and also contains his criticism of Adair's translation of Perec's La disparition (A Void), with which he finds several faults. It also contains examples of Monk's own playful work. Monk is the only living English member of Oulipo, although not the only English one ever, and even on death you're still a member. Last November, Oulipo celebrated its 5000th anniversary: Oulipian years are 100 times shorter than ours. Monks's homage is here.
