Abstract

Contacts stored in electronic memories, telephone directories, honours boards, menus, these very words and phrases—lists are an inescapable part of everyday life. Recognizing that they are also an increasingly common, yet relatively neglected, device in literature, Gaspard Turin determines in this stimulating survey to ‘combler ce manque’ (p. 5) and to ‘décrire et théoriser la liste’ (p. 181), principally as it manifests itself in the contemporary novel.
