Hidden City: Adventures and Explorations in Dublin

by Karl Whitney - £9.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780241966129 | ISBN 10: 0241966124

Dublin is a city much visited and deeply mythologized. In Hidden City, Karl Whitney - who has been described by Gorse as 'Dublin's best psychogeographer since James Joyce' - explores the places the city's denizens and tourists easily overlook.
 
Whitney finds hidden places and untold stories in underground rivers of the Liberties, on the derelict sites once earmarked for skyscrapers in Ballsbridge, in the twenty Dublin homes once inhabited by Joyce, and on the beach at Loughshinny, where he watches raw sewage being pumped into the shallows of the Irish Sea.
 
Hidden City shows us a Dublin - or a collection of Dublins - that we've never seen before, a city hiding in plain sight.
