Intervention I. What You Find in the River: Isolarion Ten Years On

  • James Attlee


In 2005, I decided to write the story of a street that runs through the neighbourhood in which I live (Attlee 2007). I had come to believe that more or less anything could be learnt there, from insights into very local issues to the impact of the most distant events, the ripples of which were transmitted along a network of connections maintained by the community’s diverse population.
