William Firebrace - Marseille Mix
Marseille Mix describes the city of Marseille, its culture, buildings, gastronomy, cinematic images, history, planning, language, music, detective stories, criminology. These aspects of the city interrelate and overlap, to create a complex ever shifting image. In seven chapters (in reference to the seven hills surrounding Marseille and the seven seas to the south) the book, written by architect and author William Firebrace, uses various forms of writing – essay, narrative, description, list, recipe, glossary, conversation – to examine the city and investigate its defining mix.
