Atlas of Urban Mythologies

Contemporary mythologies are out there, in the urban chaos. Monsters, giants, constructions, spirits and creatures of all sorts tell the cities’ everyday life struggles if one is willing to listen to them. ‘Atlas of Urban Mythologies’ welcomes all their voices in a collection of short stories set in seven cities across Europe: Athens, Nicosia, Tbilisi, Belgrade, Ljubljana, Basel, and Tirana. When embarking on these journeys, the narrators — and the readers — are faced with real urban issues that are revealed through the power of myths.
