Thoughts of Sorts

by Georges PerecDavid Bellos

Georges Perec was a leading exponent of French literary experimentalism who found humour – and pathos – in the human need for classification.

Thoughts of Sorts is a unique collection of philosophical riffs on his obsession with lists, puzzles, catalogues, and taxonomies.

Previously unpublished in the UK, it is here introduced by Margaret Drabble.

Thoughts of Sorts is a very enjoyable collection, from the useful “Statement of Intent” to its consideration of the physical act of reading. . . yet another must-read for any Perec-fan.’
