Join this informal Sunday morning reading group to chat about Georges Perec: An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in Paris. In 1974 Perec recorded everything that he saw in Place Saint-Sulpice: the non-events, the everyday, the ‘what happens, when nothing happens’. The result is 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.
