Item description for Decapolis: Tales From Ten Cities by Maria Crossan, Stuart Pawson, Kate Charles & H. R. F. Keating...
Highlighting a cross-section of cultures, voices, landscapes, and recent histories of10 major European cities, this short fiction collection presents new perspectives on the urban experience. Depicting characters that are only loosely connected to the societies that they describe, these tales offer snapshots of each city through isolated glimpses enlivened by surrealist wit---a lonely woman in Amsterdam cooks for a circle of middle-aged bachelors; a poet in Barcelona tries to capture the essence of the city in 11 words;and an unemployed journalist wanders inhis deserted office in Reykjavik.
