“La Boutique Obscure … is a work of considerable breadth and variety, and much of it is good fun, too. Any new bit of Pereciana is welcome, and fans will certainly appreciate and enjoy La Boutique Obscure.” —The Complete Review
”The book captivates…occasionally Perec’s dreaming mind alights on an image that condenses the pathos of an entire life.” —The Rumpus
