Urban Dwellings: A Cincinnati Love Song is the ideal introduction to the Queen City of the West. Each of the 57 vignettes in this small volume reveals an aspect of city living that inspires, amuses, or informs:
* From the sound of a jazz septet in the public library to an encounter with city wildlife
* From the spontaneous actions of neighbors during Hurricane Ike's damaging remnants to the courageous response of citizens to bank failures and credit abuses during the Panic of 1837
Writing with a passion for intriguing, little-noticed details, author Katherine Durack vividly captures the everyday extraordinary of the people, the history, and the environs of Cincinnati.
