Books Illuminate Cities

Looking at cities through the eyes of literature takes you beyond the beaten track of city guides, sights and restaurant recommendations. Lit Cities is a multifaceted library of selected novels that unveil the magic of urban tales and equip the reader with a feeling for a city's inhabitants, their habits and idiosyncrasies.

Recommendations

Lit Cities relies on recommendations by versatile personalities from around the world who have one thing in common: Their love for books. The Lit Cities Literature Atlas is a collection of their personal contributions.
