Book Club, 19th Dec. Jonathan Raban’s Soft City (2012)

Recommended by two of our group, Soft City was written in the early 1970s when Raban lived in London, and is “a vivid, often funny portrait of metropolitan life, Soft City is part reportage, part incisive thesis, part intimate autobiography, and a much-quoted classic of the literature of the city and urban culture.”

An interesting (and much later) piece by Raban himself: http://www.jonathanraban.com/article.php?id=29
