About this book
A literary collection of essays on the transforming city, from writers such as Iain Sinclair, Geoff Dyer, Marshall Berman and China Mieville. There will be reviews in broadsheets and art magazines.
The metropolis is a site of endless making and unmaking. From the attempt to imagine a city-symphony to the cinematic tradition that runs from Walter Ruttmann to Terence Davies, this book traces the idiosyncratic character of the metropolitan city from the nineteenth century to the twenty-first-century megalopolis.
