The Death and Life of Great American Cities

If someone wanted me to recommend a guide to writing good fiction, I’d give them this book, which was published in 1961. It’s about urban planning, yes, but it tells you so much about how human beings interact with each other. There’s a quote from it as an epigraph to my novel. I’d vote for any politician who was into Jacobs.
