In het antiquariaat nam ik uiteindelijk 'de witte stad' mee omdat het over Coney Island bleek te gaan. Een goede keuze, een kort boek wat snel uitgelezen was.

Het boek is interessant opgebouwd uit korte alinea's die steeds vanuit een ander persoon vertellen. In het begin even verwarrend, maar daarna levert het een mooie verrassende structuur op. En een mooi inkijkje in vervlogen tijden.
