Subtitled "What Cities Do To Us, and How They Change the Way We Live, Think and Feel", Soft City is a prescient exploration of the individual's relationship with urban living. In the city we can live deliberately: inventing and renewing ourselves, carving out journeys, creating private spaces. But in the city we are also afraid of being alone, clinging to the structures of daily life to ward off the chaos around us. How is it that the noisy, jostling, overwhelming metropolis leaves us at once so energized and so fragile? In Soft City, one of our most acclaimed novelists and travel writers seeks to find out.


The book is in very good condition with clean pages and secure binding. The dustwrapper has been neatly price-clipped and has a small crease to the front cover, and is very lightly faded to the spine but is now within a protective sleeve.
