From the frozen landscapes of the Antarctic to the haunted houses of childhood, the memory of places we experience is fundamental to a sense of self. Drawing on influences as diverse as Merleau-Ponty, Freud, and J. G. Ballard, The Memory of Place charts the memorial landscape that is written into the body and its experience of the world.

This book feels a bit like tripping down the sidewalk, disoriented, a bit scary, totally weird.

He makes many references to Ponty which I appreciate and managed to keep the subject rife and interesting.

Would recommend to anybody already familiar with Phenomenology

Trigg trips through connections between place, self, and memory. His meandering shifts between complete clarity and total obscurity, perhaps simulating for his readers the experience of the uncanny.
