(2817) Perec

Reference work entry

1982 UJ. Discovered 1982 Oct. 17 by E. Bowell at Anderson Mesa.

Named for Georges Perec, who wrote a 300-page novel La Disparition (Paris, 1969) without using the letter “e”. This “eccentricity” would seem to suit him to studies of minor planets. (M 9080)

Name proposed by the discoverer, following a suggestion by J. Meeus.
