A bit of literary news, whilst I finish my book. The anthology I contributed a little while ago on the inequality of New York now has a Chinese edition. Edited by John Freeman, Tales of Two Cities includes words from an incredibly rich host of luminaries. With contributions from: DAVID BYRNE, GARNETTE CADOGAN, BILL CHENG, TEJU COLE, LYDIA DAVIS, JONATHAN DEE, JUNOT DÍAZ, MARK DOTY, DAVE EGGERS, JONATHAN SAFRAN FOER, TIM FREEMAN, D.W. GIBSON, CHAASADAHYAH JACKSON, SARAH JAFFE, LAWRENCE JOSEPH, VICTOR LaVALLE, VALERIA LUISELLI, COLUM McCANN, DINAW MENGESTU, TÉA OBREHT, PATRICK RYAN, MICHAEL SALU, ROSIE SCHAAP, TAIYE SELASI, AKHIL SHARMA, ZADIE SMITH, JEANNE THORNTON, HANNAH TINTI, MARIA VENEGAS, and EDMUND WHITE.
My essay is entitled 'Mixed Media, Dimensions Variable' and is a somewhat semantic flaneur's exploration of the city's cadence. The Uk edition is published by Penguin RandomHouse and by OR Books in the U.S
