by Deirdre Mask

This work of popular history uncovers how streets got their names, houses their numbers, and what it reveals about class, race, power, and identity.  Both engaging and wide-ranging, it travels through time and place from ancient Rome to modern Kolkata, India, with stops in New York City, London, Berlin, Vienna, Haiti, Iran, Japan, and Korea along the way.  A finalist for the 2020 Kirkus Prize.
