Fictions of the City Officially Released

Fictions of the City (Palgrave, 2009) is officially released today and is available in shops and to order online direct from Palgrave or via Amazon (as well as all the other usual outlets).

Many studies of fictions of city life take the flaneur as the characteristic metropolitan type and streets and plazas as definitive urban spaces. Looking at novels and films set in London and Paris from "L'Assommoir" to "Nil By Mouth", this book shows that mass housing is equally central to images of the modern city.
