As I look through the collection, it's been intriguing to see the different styles and approaches each poet took, and I look forward to many more readers discovering this anthology in the years ahead.
The anthology might make an excellent gift for someone about to travel the world, or for one who has already done so. It might be read by diplomats, or young children who need a chance to dream and imagine these cities beyond the dry details of the encyclopedia or textbook. Here, the cities often come alive through the voices of those most intimately acquainted with them. At turns ambitious, sumptuous and daring, there is much to consider and reconsider regarding what we know, what we feel, and what we suspect about each of these cities.
