So the Imaginary Cities book is finally out (you can pick up a copy via Influx Press’ site though most bookshops can order it in).
The response has been phenomenal. Thanks so much to everyone who has read it and been so encouraging.
Thanks especially to Stephanie Boland for interviewing me for City Metric/New Statesman, which you can read here.
And to the following publications and reviewers for their exceptionally generous and thoughtful reviews:
Chicago Tribune (“poetic, aphoristic and comprising a seeming infinity of quotable lines… a wonder cabinet”)
The London Economic (“a rare tome, one that fuses a grand scope with a heart to match… a challenging, enlightening, and intelligent meander through time and space”)
Seroword (“unique and intelligent… [it] walks the desolate undercarriages of cities in motion and peers into the dripping corners with a mining lamp at a world that was”)
The launch at Waterstones Piccadilly next week is sold out but I’ve events forthcoming in London, Glasgow, Dublin, Belfast and Bristol, and hopefully further afield. More details on those to follow.
