Georges Perec was a novelist, filmmaker, documentalist, and essayist. Species of Spaces and Other Pieces is a collection of writings that catalogue the different spaces we inhabit. Through exhaustive lists, word games, observational writing and memory, Perec attempts to fix his spaces against time; to wrest some permanence from a constantly rearranging world.
