When one thinks city, one often thinks of hustle, bustle, and density. But architecturally, it can also be the shapes of substance, the shapes of absence, and the interplay of light and shadow across these expanses.
This vignette centered on Islington, London, speaks to the lights and shadows of a city. It’s a neighborhood of sleep-walkers and the sleep-deprived in a landscape of optical illusion. The idea is introduced and then left without anecdote or development.
This tale appears in the anthology An Unreliable Guide to London by Influx Press, London. I received my copy of this anthology directly from one of the contributing authors through bookreviewdirectory.wordpress.com.
