Writing the City into Being is Bremner’s long-awaited collection of
essays, spanning more than a decade of work on Johannesburg. It is
both an unflinching analysis of the characteristics of an
extraordinary city and a work of imagination – a bringing of the
evasive city into being through writing. Johannesburg has become a
touchstone in critical thinking on the development of the
twenty-first-century city, attracting scholars from around the
world who seek to understand how cities are changing in the face of
urban migration in all its myriad forms and the inflow of foreign
capital and interest. Bremner is at the forefront of this
scholarship. Her intimate knowledge of the city makes this a deeply
personal but authoritative collection of essays.
