Book Description

28 April 2011
Celebrated as the man who wrote an entire novel without using the letter 'e', and another in the form of a vast jigsaw puzzle, Georges Perec found humour - and pathos - in the human need for arrangement and classification. The essays in Thoughts of Sorts explore the rules by which we find a place in the world. Is thinking a kind of sorting? Is sorting a kind of thought?

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great book. 13 Jan 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A beautiful edition of fairly short pieces that you will want to carry around and dip into at opportune moments. Almost designed for that purpose with a nice hard cover without a dust-jacket, a perfect travel companion. Such enjoyable writing, playfully and wittily playing with the possibilities of writing and words.
