A slim volume featuring Georges Perec’s writings on the simple task of arranging books and what it can reveal about life

One of the most singular and extravagant imaginations of the 20th century, the novelist and essayist Georges Perec was a true original who delighted in wordplay, puzzles, taxonomies, and seeing the extraordinary in the everyday. In these virtuoso writings about books and language, he discusses different ways of reading, a list of the things he really must do before he dies, and the power of words to overcome the chaos of the world.

Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselvesand each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war, and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked, and comforted. They have enriched livesand upended them. Now Penguin brings you a new set of the acclaimed Great Ideas, a curated library of selections from the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals, and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.
