Sarah Broadhurst's view...

 

June 2010 Book of the Month.

 

Not a travel guide but a literary flavour of a city.  The series has done Paris, London, Berlin and Dublin.  They are anthologies of extracts from living and dead authors, some 60 in each volume, here with the likes of Camus and Voltaire to Irvine Welsh and Ian McEwan, each perfect gems.

Synopsis

City-Pick: Amsterdam by

From outsiders to insiders, from classic to cutting-edge, over seventy dazzling writers - some translated into English for the very first time - reveal the many faces, present and past, of this amazing city.


* Ian McEwan describes that perfect Amsterdam moment. *Alain de Botton finds the exotic in the ordinary *Cees Nooteboom celebrates a city of water * David Sedaris visits Anne Frank’s House * Geert Mak shows us a nation within a nation * Simon Schama evokes old Amsterdam  * Dubravka Ugresic discovers a city of exile * Doeschka Meijsing takes a swim in the canal * Geoff Dyer spends a weekend in Amsterdam … and much, much more


With a new fast rail line making Amsterdam as accessible as Paris for UK visitors, city-pick Amsterdam offers a fascinatingly fresh view of a richly diverse city for city-break travellers and lovers of entertaining and compelling writing. The latest in the ‘wonderful’ (The Guardian) city-pick series already featuring Paris, London, Berlin and Dublin.
