The City of Words

Alberto Manguel

The written port of Manguel's 02007 Massey Lecture for CBC Radio. A series of five presentations that can be better understood when listened to rather than read. It is a dissertation on the use of literature to understand the ever-elusive Other, and a strong polemic on the role of literature in the modern century, especially the later chapters on the corrupting nature of modern publishing.
