Welcome to One City—Population: Everyone—where everything you do matters: What you wear. What you say. What you think/ignore/buy/don’t buy... You’ve lived here your whole life, whether you know it or not.
Ethan Nichtern, the charismatic and creative force behind New York’s Interdependence Project is your guide to the beauty that is everywhere in the urban jungle—in the rattling of subway trains, the screechings of traffic, the hum and drone of millions scurrying for work, food, sustenance, art, culture, and meaning. There may be no greater setting for exploring the great truth that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. expounded: “Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”
With its pop-culture savvy, humor, and literary liveliness, One City melds Dr. King’s message with modern Buddhist wisdom to explain how we might best live together—no matter who we are, and no matter where.
