Between 1970 and 1982, Georges Perec sent his friends small pamphlets with his best wishes for the New Year. These were collections of short texts based on homophonic variations. The three pieces are neither translations of this material (which is, by its very nature, untranslatable), nor entirely original pieces of work, rather a sort of homage to Perec. They have been collected together to celebrate the first year of Patricia Borlenghi’s Patrician Press.
