New York state of mind:
Megan Bradbury's literary portrait of a city through its art
Megan Bradbury’s debut novel Everyone is Watching is a portrait of modern New York from the perspective of the artists who have made it their muse. Zooming in on the lives of four creative figures - Walt Whitman, Robert Moses, Robert Mapplethorpe and Edmund White - it describes the way art influences a city and vice versa, from Walt Whitman’s visionary urbanism at the end of the 19th century, through to Edmund White’s nostalgia for a city that has all but disappeared by the start of the 21st. SIMON RICHARDSON meets the author to talk town planning, literary ventriloquism and explicit photographs.
