Trans-Europe Express: Owen Hatherley and Lynsey Hanley

In Trans-Europe Express, Owen Hatherley sets out to explore the European city across the entire continent, to see what exactly makes it so different to the Anglo-Saxon norm - the unplanned, car-centred, developer-oriented spaces common to the US, Ireland, UK and Australia. Attempting to define the European city, Hatherley finds a continent divided both within the EU and outside it. Hatherley was at the Bookshop in conversation with Lynsey Hanley, author of Estates: An Intimate History (Granta) and Respectable: The Experience of Class (Penguin).
