With this vast and fascinating body of work, Perec aimed at anchoring his biography in urban space. Georges Perec et ses lieux de mémoire is the first book length study about this “mythic book”, which remained unpublished for a long time. It explores Perec’s recurrent themes, writing practises, graphisms and photographs, showing the impact of classical rhetoric on his methodology, which makes Lieux into a topics of his places of memory.
