Last weeks visit to Jeanette Winterson’s pages made me very curious about the new Woolf editions from Vintage. Since The Waves is the best novel ever written, and since I’m in the middle of re-reading Mrs Dalloway just now, I found no reason not to add these two new editions to my collection…
The third book in the picture is: Psychogeography by Merlin Coverley.
Psychogeography was defined in 1955 by Guy Debord as “the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals”.
I really don’t know a thing about the concept of psychogeography, but I read and enjoyed several works which could be labeled ‘nature writing’ last year (Dillard, Solnit, Thoreau), so therefore I imagine psychogeography could be of some interest too.
