Reviews

Praise for In the City

This book is one of a kind: a view straight through the stone and steel, an X-ray of the city's consciousness. Colette Brooks writes like someone telling a secret. --Luc Sante

A lively mix of narrative, catechism, reportage, memoir, and meditative essay. This is an engaging book, so fraught with self-consciousness as to bring into question our notions of writing and literary structure. --Billy Collins

I've read In the City three times and expect to read it again. In lovely, exact prose Colette Brooks has fixed her experience of urban life with insight and compassion and humor and a sense of the encompassing mystery. --Stanley Kauffmann
