At time of publication, a studio in San Francisco or Manhattan goes for approximately one billion dollars a month—and that’s before utilities. So, it’s no surprise that more and more people are ditching the hustle of city streets for a more peaceful existence in the country. City Quitters: An Exploration of Post-Urban Life explores the challenges, benefits, and logistics behind making this move happen. Does the romanticized vision come to fruition for these peace-craving creatives? What happens when you trade the cacophony of car horns for the song of cicadas? This 256-page hardcover offers case studies and insight into the decision to get out of Dodge. If you want to leave the city behind, wait until November 13 to read this book.
