Georges Perec, novelist,filmmaker and essayist, was one of the most inventive and original writers ofthe twentieth century. A fascinating aspect of his work is its intrinsicallygeographical nature. With major projects on space and place, Perec’s writingspeaks to a variety of geographical, urban and architectural concerns, both in a substantive way, including a focus on cities,streets, homes and apartments, and in a methodological way, experimenting withmethods of urban exploration and observation, classification, enumeration andtaxonomy.

Georges Perec’s Geographies is the first bookto offer a rounded picture of Perec’s geographical interests. Divided into two parts, Part I, Perec’sGeographies, explores the geographies within Perec’s work in film, literatureand radio, fromdescriptions of streets to the spaces of his texts, while Part II, Perecquian Geographies, explores geographies in a range of materialand metaphorical forms, including photographic essays, soundscapes, theatre,dance and writing, created by those directly inspired by Perec.

Georges Perec’s Geographies extends the body of Perec criticism beyond Literaryand French Studies to disciplines including Geography, Urban Studies, Planningand Architecture to offer a complete and systematic examination of Georges Perec’sgeographies. The diversity of readings and approaches will be of interest notonly to Perec readers and fans but to students and researchers across thesesubjects.
