"This book offers a keen analysis of the roles played by writing and intellectuals in the configurations of Latin American urban institutions. Indeed, more than a book, "The Lettered City "could be better understood as an event, a self-reflective operation that radically questioned the conditions of thinking and writing in Latin America, a critical intensification of intellectual practices that both displaced and relocated the ubiquitous subject of Latinamericanism."-- Julio Ramos, University of California, Berkeley
