Guide to every city


Out of stock

Guide to Every City is a guide for a fictional city inhabited by insects.

The three different species of insect in Ever City: hopsters, sloggers, and buzzies live segregated lives in their isolated neighbourhoods. The book not only presents a commentary on social divisions within urban life it also satirises orientalism in contemporary travel writing. The fictional author of the guide -Steve McCracker- is a thoroughly unrelatable hipster who genuinely believes that the rest of the world did not exist until he “discovered” it for some overdesigned travel magazine. You will laugh you will cringe, in the words of Steve: you will “never be the same again.”
