Product Details


The Missing Pieces is a list not only to be read an item at a time, but, as the very cover of the book itself might imply, to be viewed as a mishmash of things forgotten, and of things we need to dutifully remember.—Micah McCrary, Bookslut

Into a contemporary landscape of data mining and information fracking comes Henri Lefebvre’s The Missing Pieces, a beautifully absurd accumulation of useless numbers and gravid blankness…. Like history’s own compacted narrative, Lefebvre’s economy of restraint holds countless events suspended in a semicolon.

Prudence Peiffer, Bookforum

I can’t recommend it enough. The entries are short, tightly written fragments—a funny, absurd, poignant and melancholy gathering of things that once were, but are now gone.

Carolina Miranda, Los Angeles Times

The Missing Pieces has as much to do with presence as with absence, and this tells us something about the canon, and—forgive me—about ‘poetry in general.’ I mean that no equivalent list of artworks or gains or successes could be so powerful as The Missing Pieces.
