Reading the city

Reading the city

(click the link above)

I’m blogging about this piece in the Times for others and so that I can go back and follow up on all the books mentioned. It’s a collection of works from this past year on the subject of cities and how we live in them. Also, of note, from last year, was David Byrne’s Bicycle Diaries, in which the author/musician muses on various cities as he tours them by bike.
