An audacious autobiography by the founding figure of the Situationist International.
Guy Debord’s silver-tongue-in-cheek autobiography mixes precision and pastiche in a whirlwind account of philosophy, exploit, and inebriation. From the stark professions of Volume I to the illustrated sequences of Volume 2, Panegyric confronts us with a figure who strategically, demonically tried to wrest life from the disabling modern 'spectacle.'

Reviews:

“A brief and elegiac memoir of a life lived in its shadows and cracks.”

– Artforum
“As cryptic and self-effacing a self-portrait as can be found anywhere ... Panegyric is almost purely literary, in the sense that one need know or care nothing of the author to be captured by it: Debord is seeking to hijack his era into timelessness.”

– London Review of Books
“These concise but extremely rich and provocative memoirs are the product of … a philosopher whose scathing pen has never been so sharp.”

– San Francisco Chronicle
