Aprašymas

Winner of the 2020 Medici Prize for Foreign Novel

From the award-winning author of the Man Booker Prize finalist Like a Fading Shadow, Antonio Mu�oz Molina presents a fl�neur-novel tracing the path of a nameless wanderer as he walks the length of Manhattan, and his mind.




De Quincey, Baudelaire, Poe, Joyce, Benjamin, Melville, Lorca, Whitman . . . each a walker and a city dweller, a collagist and a chronicler, picking the detritus of their eras off the filthy streets and assembling it into something new, shocking, and beautiful. In To Walk Alone in the Crowd, Antonio Mu�oz Molina emulates these classical inspirations, following their peregrinations and telling their stories in a book that is part memoir, part novel, part chronicle of urban wandering.

A master collagist himself, Mu�oz Molina here assembles overheard conversations, subway ads, commercials blazing away on public screens, snatches from books hurriedly packed into bags or shoved under one's arm, mundane anxieties, and the occasional true flash of insight--struggling to announce itself amid this barrage of data--into a poem of contemporary life: an invitation to let oneself be carried along by the sheer energy of the digital metropolis.

A denunciation of the harsh noise of capitalism, of the conversion of everything into either merchandise or garbage (or both), To Walk Alone in the Crowd is also a celebration of the beauty and variety of our world, of the ecological and aesthetic gaze that can, even now, recycle waste into art, and provide an opportunity for rebirth.
