Twenty-five years after his most famous book, ‘Invisible City’, Schles revisits his archive and the narrative of a lost youth emerges: a delirious, aimless, evening stroll through downtown New York and what he sees during this experience. This book is meant to be an intimate chronicle of that pre-internet New York, somewhat bohemian in its existence, a ‘stream of consciousness’ that manages to reveal both the squalor and the thrill of a struggle for life, lived amidst the rubble. Susan Sontag describes Schles’ work as a ‘cruise through urban hell, led by a master of empathy’. We perceive in ‘Night Walk’ a revolutionary new ‘Ulysses’, created specifically for the 21st century: the search for a tale of wonder and longing, of life and love, to be found in the dying carcass of a seemingly ruined American city.
