City of The Mind

Author(s): Penelope Lively

Location(s): London

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): 2000s



Architect Matthew Halland lets himself be influences by the blend of past and present, memories of childhood, his daughter and his marriage that has ended – architecture is his metaphor for life moving along and change. He is now preoccupied with his vision of a new architectural landscape in Docklands, and with it forging new beginnings in his own life.

Lead Review

Evocative descriptions of Covent Garden, and focus on Docklands. This book has a real sense of transience, one man’s journey through life, rich in detail and beautifully written.
