I mentioned Georges Perec's Art and Craft of Approaching Your Head of Department to Submit a Request for a Raise last Thursday. In the UK it is published by Vintage, but in the US it comes out via Verso (with the slightly shorter, but less winningly pedantic title The Art of Asking Your Boss for a Raise; same David Bellos translation of the text).

Alongside the Verso title comes a website, the cleverly entitled Go play.
