Scope and Contents This biography of Georges Perec (1936-1982), novelist, poet, verbal gamesman, and master puzzler, whom Italo Calvino called, 'so singular a literary personality that he bears absolutely no resemblance to anyone else,' is very lucidly presented. The biographer, David Bellos, also the English translator of Perec's books, has written such an interesting book that it almost reads like a fictional account of Perec's life. It is extremely well researched and documented. Examples of Perec's typewriter art, which he did mostly while working as a technician in a Neurophysiology Laboratory in Paris are printed on pages 260 and 690.

In fact, in the 1960s, a diverse array of artists, musicians, poets, writers, and filmmakers around the world were engaging with mainframe and mini-computers to create innovative new artworks that contradict the stereotypes of "computer art." Juxtaposing the original works alongside scholarly contributions by well-established and emerging scholars from several disciplines, Mainframe Experimentalism demonstrates that the radical and experimental aesthetics and political and cultural engagements of early digital art stand as precursors for the mobility among technological platforms, artistic forms, and social sites that has become commonplace today.s -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
