This book explores the literary re-imagining of the city in post-war fiction and argues that the image, history and narrative of the city has been transformed alongside the physical rebuilding and repositioning of the capital. Drawing on the ideas of Michel de Certeau, Henri Lefebvre, Anthony Vigler and others, as well as the latest work on urban representation, this book is an important contribution to the study of the intersection between place, lived experience and the literary imagination."--Jacket." ;
