Unruly Places: Lost Spaces, Secret Cities, and Other Inscrutable Geographies
Unruly Places: Lost Spaces, Secret Cities, and Other Inscrutable Geographies
by Alastair Bonnett
Staff Pick
Unruly Places is The Chronicles of Narnia for grown-ups, made real. Sorted into chapters like "Dead Cities" and "No Man's Lands," which are further divided into vignettes about specific locations (complete with the global coordinates!), Unruly Places takes the reader into both natural and man-made spaces, far-flung and domestic. Bonnett is keenly interested in how people perceive and create places, and one of the pleasures of this book are his insights into what our desires regarding place say about us. Why do we lust for new places to explore and to own, and what do we do in a world that's been primarily mapped out?
