Sinopsis

A wide-ranging literary portrait of Mexico City by a former New Yorker profiles the Mexican capital as a thriving urban center comprising centuries of history as well as rapid development, in a kaleidoscopic depiction that offers insight into its growing relevance on the world stage. Reprint. 
The definitive book on Mexico City: a vibrant, seductive, and paradoxical metropolis-the second-biggest city in the world, and a vision of our urban future.First Stop in the New World is a street-level panorama of Mexico City, the largest metropolis in the western hemisphere and the cultural capital of the Spanish- speaking world. Journalist David Lida expertly captures the kaleidoscopic nature of life in a city defined by pleasure and danger, ecstatic joy and appalling tragedy-hanging in limbo between the developed and underdeveloped worlds. With this literary-journalist account, he establishes himself as the ultimate chronicler of this bustling megalopolis at a key moment in its-and our-history.
