REVIEW Tentative d'épuisement d'un lieu parisien 109 Ecording 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; a wedding and then a funeral at the church in the center of the suare; the signs symbols and slogans littering everything;. It took me a little bit to fully accept the premise of this slender volume Ostensibly it s a description of everything going on in one place with an odd fixation on buses And at first I thought neat trick but what s the point Then the I read the it came to me as a prose poem an ode to the ebb and flow of urban life to both the joys and the melancholy of being solitary in a great city Honestly all I wanted to do afterwards was sit out in front of the decrepit royal statue in the corner of Lumphini Park watch the traffic split down Silom Rama IV and Ratchadamri Roads the coming and going of metro trains and take notes Perception pass through his field of vision the Die swaard verteer people walking by; the buses and driving school cars caught in their routes; the The Silver Pigs premise of this slender volume Ostensibly it s a description of everything going on in one Rock the Boat place with an odd fixation on buses And at first I thought neat trick but what s the Literarische Orte in Deutschsprachigen Erz�hlungen Des Mittelalters point Then the I read the it came to me as a Reign of a King Kingdom Duet #1 prose Mr Black And White poem an ode to the ebb and flow of urban life to both the joys and the melancholy of being solitary in a great city Honestly all I wanted to do afterwards was sit out in front of the decrepit royal statue in the corner of Lumphini Park watch the traffic split down Silom Rama IV and Ratchadamri Roads the coming and going of metro trains and take notes

REVIEW Tentative d'épuisement d'un lieu parisien 109 And the darkness that finally 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 th. This was a very weird book and it made for an interesting reading experience The book is literally a long list that the author writes sitting in a cafe in Paris for 3 days describing every single thing that passes out of the window There is no story to it no cohesion just literally a laundry list of every single detail of everything that he sees It made me feel like when you repeat a word again and again and after a while it loses meaning This is how this book felt by the end The details didn t make sense any and even though the descriptions were still realistic it made for a very surreal experience I can t give it than 3 stars because even though I really appreciate it for what it is and for pushing the boundaries of storytelling I can t say I enjoyed it I was bored out of mind Which is kind of what the book sets out to do though So maybe in that sense it s extremely successful Hmm

REVIEW Tentative d'épuisement d'un lieu parisien 109 One overcast weekend in October 1974 Georges Perec set out in uest of the infraordinary the humdrum the non event the everyday what happens as he put it when nothing happens His choice of locale was Place Saint Sulpice where ensconced behind first one cafe window then another he spent three days r. This was a gift from my boyfriend and I m really excited that it found its way into my life because it was such a uniue reading experienceThese are the observations of a man who sits in a cafe for 3 days and just watches the streets in front of him That s literally it He lists everything basically in bullet points that he sees the buses that pass by the people that walk around the cars and pigeons and kids and foodI really respect what he did it was a project with an objective and he achieved that objective It was unlike anything I ve ever read before and I enjoyed the experience of reading an experimental project like this It has honestly inspired me to try and do something non traditional and crafty with writing But I couldn t give it than three stars because I feel like it fell short of any meaning or interesting end goal I d been hoping that he would make commentary on what he was seeing make connections or at least at the end have some sort of afterthoughts But it didn t It was literally just a list of the things he saw and it failed to have any punch for me It s definitely something I m glad I ve read and something I ll be mulling over
