His adopted home a street map of the human imagination, Green accompanies the reader on a stroll through this enchanted place – its secret stairways, courtyards and alleys – sharing his discovers and sense of wonder at every turning. A simple stroll through the city becomes a journey into the mind of a literary craftsman. This special bi-lingual edition is illustrated with the author’s own photographs.
