How to Live in the City, Paperback


Building a relationship with a city is a lot like building a relationship with another person - just as cities can be intoxicating, generous and inspiring, so they can also be dangerous, fickle and impenetrable.

How to Live in the City is a book for navigating and nurturing this important relationship.

Hugo Macdonald believes you need to feel a city to understand it.

He won't tell you how wide the perfect pavement should be but he will show you how to walk down a pavement with eyes wide open.

This is a book to help you feel human in an inhuman environment.
