            'A journey around both the author's mind and the planet's great cities that leaves us energised, open to new experiences and ready to return more hopefully to our lives' ALAIN DE BOTTON ___________________ A love letter to the cities of the world, from the bestselling pilot-autho...r of Skyfaring. Growing up in his small hometown, Mark Vanhoenacker spun the illuminated globe in his bedroom and dreamt of elsewhere - of distant, real cities, and a perfect metropolis that existed only in his imagination. These places were sources of endless fascination and escape- streets unspooled, towers shone, and anonymous crowds bustled in cities where Mark could be anyone - perhaps even himself. Now, as a commercial airline pilot, Mark has spent nearly two decades crossing the skies of our planet, touching down in the cities he imagined as a child. He experiences these metropolises in short layover visits that repeat month after month and year after year, giving him a unique perspective on the places that form our urban world. Interweaving travelogue with memoir, Mark celebrates the cities he has come to know and love through the lens of the hometown his heart has never left. Exploring the emblematic emblematic facets of each city's identity - the sweeping roads of Los Angeles, the old gates of Jeddah, the intricate, dream-inspired plan of Brasilia - he shows us with warmth and fresh eyes the extraordinary places that billions of us call home. 'Enriching... A touching survey of human dreams and endeavours' PATRICK GALE 'Will transport you around the globe and back again without leaving your seat' MARK OVENDEN, author of Airline Maps and London Underground by Design

            "This is the story of the building of Holy Trinity Cathedral in Parnell, Auckland, New Zealand. The story begins with the purchase of the land by Bishop Selwyn in 1842. Bishop Cowie was thwarted in his efforts to begin building on that land and St Mary's was built opposite and be...came the cathedral of the diocese for nearly 100 years. In 1957 the foundation stone of Holy Trinity was laid owing largely to the generous bequest of Miss Horton. The story of Holy Trinity and the story of St Mary's are intertwined. In 1982 St Mary's was brought across the road to be an integral part of Holy Trinity. In the mid 1990s the nave was completed. Both the nave design and the relocation of St Mary's were the inspired insights of Professor Dick Toy. Controversy has been part of the process. Frank Wright tells the story with the emphasis on the people involved. It is a moving account of a great project which gives the Anglican church in Auckland a centre of unity and belonging, and which provides a witness to the Christian Gospel and its relevance"--Publisher information.
