It focuses on the cultural connections between prose narratives - the novel, short stories, autobiography, crime and science fiction - and a range of urban environments, from the city apartment and river to the colonial house and the utopian city.

The book breaks new ground in its exclusive focus on modern narrative and urban space. The essays examine texts and spaces that have both unsettled traditional definitions of literature and architecture and reflected and shaped modern identities: sexual, domestic, professional and national. It is essential reading for students and researchers of literature, cultural studies, cultural geography, art history and architectural history.
