'An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in London' by Nathan Penlington and Sarah Lester
An exciting October release: An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in London from Burning Eye Books is based on an experiment by author George Perec, who challenged himself to capture every minute detail in a square in Paris over one weekend. Writers Nathan Penlington and Sarah Lester replicate this experiment in London, in a square in the North-East borough of Hackney.
More than the work of one writer, this is a collaboration between two observers with differing sensibilities and styles - the overlaps and deviations of the simultaneous accounts underlining the impossibility and futility of the task.
An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in London is now available to order for £9.99.
