Georges Perec

An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in Paris

€ 14.95


`One overcast weekend in October 1974, Georges Perec set out in quest of the `infraordinary`: the humdrum, the nonevent, the everyday--`what happens,` as he put it, `when nothing happens.` His choice of locale was Place Saint-Sulpice where, ensconced behind first one cafâe window, then another, he spent three days recording everything to pass through his field of vision: the people walking by; the buses and driving-school cars caught in their routes; the pigeons moving suddenly en masse, as if in accordance to some mysterious command; the wedding (and then funeral) at the church in the center of the square; the signs, symbols, and slogans littering everything; and the darkness that eventually absorbs it all. In An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in Paris, Perec compiled a melancholic, slightly eerie, and oddly touching document in which existence boils down to rhythm, writing turns into time, and the line between the empirical and the surreal grows surprisingly thin.`--P. [4] of cover
