Overview

Through descriptions of her walks through cities in which she has lived, Lauren Elkin writes a literal and metaphorical tour that gives us a new look at each and remarks on the unique experience of being a woman in these places. From trivial details to ample observations, she intertwines her personal experience with those of artists and writers whose perspectives transformed hers.Elkin hace un recorrido literal y metafórico de las ciudades en las que ha vivido y, a través de sus paseos, nos descubre una nueva mirada y reivindica la experiencia singular de pasear siendo mujer. Parte del detalle más nimio a la observación más amplia, toma notas de su propia experiencia y las entrelaza con las de otras artistas, escritoras, cineastas y periodistas a las que admira y cuyas miradas han formado y transformado a la propia autora.
