What one book will allow others to gain the truest insight into the soul of each city or region
Inspired by this recent Metafilter post
and blatantly stealing the idea (and some text) from this AskMe post
, I have decided to try and read a book about all of the major cities in the United States and the world. I've seen AskMe's in the past about various cities, such as London and New York.
So: which single book from each city is most revealing of the lifestyle, customs, struggles, and spirit of that nation? I lived in San Francisco a while back, and I would recommend any of Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City' books to get a true idea of life in the City.
