Texts about the city are not necessarily architectural critique, historical guide or economicnon-fiction. "Just kids" by Patti Smith is a book about New York to the same extend as the book about music and photo of Mapplethorpe, "Ali and Nino" - a guide about Baku,and not just a novel about love. Good text about the city is not required to be thickvolume of Peter Ackroyd: sometimes witty caption in instagram can tell everything you need to know. To write texts about the city, not necessarily even be interested inurbanism, but you need to take an interest in life.
