On Lefebvre's Critique of Everyday Life

Thu Jan 15, 2009

Or, at least, on the specific copy of it I got from Verso as a gift for subscribing (finally) to NLR. The copy they sent me has about a twenty page interpolation of some type of organizational theory text, different typography and everything, almost in the middle. I don’t know if I received the book because they knew it was defective, or if the entire print run is like this; but I have to admit that I’ve thought about what it would be like to assign this edition in a class and then pretend as if the organizational theory text is in fact a Borgesian creation of Lefebvre’s. I could imagine spending hours puzzling out the implications of this bold move in seminar.
