Colombian writer Eduardo García Aguilar captures the unseen side of the metropolis, inviting us to join him in the great cities of the world, from Paris, Stockholm and Rome to Mexico City, Antigua and San Francisco, from the garrets of lovers in Europe to the killing fields of civil wars in the Americas, from the beautiful bodies of youth to the nostalgia of old age. We witness these luminous urbs through the eyes of a "professional foreigner." Artist Santiago Rebolledo illustrates each of these stories.
