A Shout in the Street: An Excursion into the Modern City
A remarkable meditation on the topography of the modern city, A Shout in the Street offers a close and sensitive examination of four urban landscapes--London, Paris, Leningrad, and New York. Peter Jukes pursues the essence of these international metropolises in an assemblage comprised of his own evocative essays, excerpts from modern masters of the essay form such as Benjamin, Barthes, and Sontag, and period photographs. A Shout in the Street, with a keenly cinematic eye, searches out not just the glittering facades, but the vitality of thoroughfares and neighborhoods.
