Manhattan '45

Jan Morris
Introduced by the author

Jan Morris's exuberant and witty love letter to the Manhattan of 1945 effortlessly evokes a time when it was 'the most hopeful city on earth'.

In 1945, Manhattan was poised on the brink of a glittering future. Standing at its pinnacle of cultural and economic power, it looked set to become ‘the supreme city of the Western world’ – in stark contrast to London, Paris and much of the rest of Europe, where the terrible consequences of war were still very much apparent.
