9781844883127: Hidden City: Adventures And Explorations In Dublin

Karl Whitney's Hidden City: a brilliant portrait of Dublin Dublin is a city much visited and deeply mythologized. In Hidden City, Karl Whitney - who has been described by Gorse as 'Dublin's best psychogeographer since James Joyce' - explores the places the city's denizens and tourists easily overlook. Whitney finds hidden places and untold stories in underground rivers of the Liberties, on the derelict sites once earmarked for skyscrapers in Ballsbridge, in the twenty Dublin homes once inhabited by Joyce, and on the beach at Loughshinny, where he watches raw sewage being pumped into the shallows of the Irish Sea. Hidden City shows us a Dublin - or a collection of Dublins - that we've never seen before, a city hiding in plain sight. 'Ingenious and affectionate ... It would be great then if the Americans and the Germans who come to Dublin in large numbers, and claim to love the city, had Whitney's book in hand rather than, say, Ulysses, or some official guide book' Colm Tóibín, Guardian 'Marvellous ... The author's eye for observation is second to none ... Hidden City is a necessary corrective to a heritage-influenced view of the past and present: for Whitney reminds us that all our environments are human - created for and maintained by us, for good and ill' Daily Telegraph 'This captivating urban tale has soul, scholarship and insights aplenty' Sunday Times 'Warm, charming, sharp and informative, this brilliant book is an indispensable guide to contemporary Dublin' Sunday Business Post 'Oh, how the capital has cried out for a book like this ... a fascinating travelogue that will make you look at Dublin with fresh eyes' Irish Independent

Review:

Marvellous ... The author's eye for observation is second to none ... Hidden City is a necessary corrective to a heritage-influenced view of the past and present: for Whitney reminds us that all our environments are human - created for and maintained by us, for good and ill Daily Telegraph Warm, charming, sharp and informative, this brilliant book is an indispensable guide to contemporary Dublin Sunday Business Post This captivating urban tale has soul, scholarship and insights aplenty Sunday Times Oh, how the capital has cried out for a book like this ... a fascinating travelogue that will make you look at Dublin with fresh eyes Irish Independent Ingenious and affectionate ... It would be great then if the Americans and the Germans who come to Dublin in large numbers, and claim to love the city, had Whitney's book in hand rather than, say, Ulysses, or some official guide book -- Colm Toibin Guardian An inspired stroll Image Whitney is not only a warm and savvy guide but an effortlessly enthusiastic one. Hidden City not only re-ignites our interest in the city's architecture but encourages us to reassess our relationship with buildings and districts we may have dismissed or overlooked Metro Herald Whitney is clear-eyed and critical, but never cynical or ungenerous, and he has produced an idiosyncratic and surprisingly nostalgic homage to a sometimes filthy, always flawed, deeply lovable city Irish Times A lovely blend of history, local colour, social and political commentary and personal memories RTE Ten An inspirational book Irish Examiner
