Restless Cities was reviewed in this Saturday’s Financial Times:

Restless Cities is a collection of quirky and occasionally superb essays by an eclectic range of writers and academics, which attempts to define new ways of reading the city and bring us back, by and large, to London. Michael Sheringham’s lovely essay, “Archiving”, sees the city as a repository of a particular language, made up of graffiti, signs and symbols. In her essay “Commuting”, Rachel Bowlby interprets the sleepy train or Tube journey from the outer suburbs as the quintessential city experience. Other chapters, entitled “Driving”, “Phoning”, “Lodging” and “Waiting”, attempt to refocus the reading of the city to a particular activity. Collectively they do an excellent job.
