Abstract:

First published: 2016. First American edition: 2017. A flâneuse is a determined, resourceful individual attuned to the creative potential of the city. In this part cultural book, part memoir, the author takes us on a tour to New York, Paris, Venice, Tokyo, and London, and describes what urban settings have meant to women, charting through literature, art, history, and film. We are shown the paths beaten by such flâneuses as the cross-dressing nineteenth-century novelist George Sand, the Parisian artist Sophie Calle, the wartime correspondent Martha Gellhorn, and the writer Jean Rhys.
