Depicting characters that are only loosely connected to the societies that they describe, these tales offer snapshots of each city through isolated glimpses enlivened by surrealist wit—a lonely woman in Amsterdam cooks for a circle of middle-aged bachelors- a poet in Barcelona tries to capture the essence of the city in 11 words- and an unemployed journalist wanders in his deserted office in Reykjavik.
