Jan Morris's six favorite books about New York

Jan Morris's new book is Battleship Yamato: Of War, Beauty and Irony.

One of her six favorite books about New York City:
Delirious New York by Rem Koolhaas

The book that launched the Dutch architect's renown is a wonderfully eccentric and influential analysis of the physical and symbolic development of New York City. Illustrated with paintings, photographs, plans, and imaginative propositions, it amounts to a dashing manifesto of Manhattanism.
Read about the other entries on the list.
