High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Soft City is the first
book written by Jonathan Raban, and published by The Harvill Press
in 1974. 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. In an age when the big city is becoming
less popular than ever, this is a passionate and imaginative
defense of city life, its "unique plasticity, its privacy and
freedom." Soft City records one man's attempt to plot a course
through the urban labyrinth. Holding up a revealing mirror to the
modern city, it is used as the locale for a demanding and
expressive personal drama.
