About this title


Gathers stories about London, Paris, Tokyo, Copenhagen, New York, Lagos, Leningrad, Barcelona, Naples, Rome, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Vienna, and Sydney

From Library Journal:

This is a collection of 39 short stories and excerpts by an international cast of women writers. Writer and critic Heron's opening essay and chapter introductions establish the context for these diverse and strong evocations of time and place. Organized chronologically, the varied pieces present urban landscapes through the sensibilities of women--from the New Woman savoring her independence in turn-of-the-century London to the contemporary urban dweller, increasingly constrained by the cosmopolitan threats of violence, loneliness, and poverty. The city is portrayed as a place of possibility and danger, of luxury and economy, of personal exploration, and of political turmoil. Many of these writers are widely read in this country, and their associations with specific cities are strong; consider, for example, Virginia Woolf and London, or Djuna Barnes and New York. Others are less familiar, and this volume provides a welcome introduction both to them and to their far-flung cities, from Buenos Aires to Tokyo.
