To Walk Alone in the Crowd
Antonio Munoz Molina, Guillermo Bleichmar, Peter Straus
Publisher: Profile Books Ltd
Available on back-order
De Quincey, Baudelaire, Poe, Joyce, Walter Benjamin, Melville, Lorca, Whitman… Antonio Munoz Molina emulates these classical inspirations, following their peregrinations as well as telling their stories, in a book that is part memoir, part novel, part chronicle of urban wandering. A master collagist himself, Molina assembles overheard conversations, subway ads, commercials blazing away on public screens, snatches from books packed into bags, mundane anxieties, and the true flash of insight, into a poem of contemporary life: an invitation to be carried along by the sheer energy of the digital metropolis.
