Reviews

We tend to associate the figure of the 'flaneur' with Paris, a city that encourages walking through all districts. But here Mitchell reclaims it forcefully and often beautifully for Glasgow, exhorting us to explore areas once thought 'off limits' as well as the tourist attractions to provide also a history of the working class. - The Sunday Herald
