An evocative, candid reveal of the media and design worlds by an award-winning journalist and activist urban planner in search of the soul of cities and himself.

From the stoops of Brooklyn and the streets of East Harlem to the newsrooms of New York and Los Angeles, from the freeways of Southern California to the shores of Malibu, An Urban Odyssey traverses the award-winning author’s seven decades in the media and the public and private sectors, as well as his time teaching and advocating for a more, equitable, livable city. Here, Sam Hall Kaplan regales readers with personal tales of his time at the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, and Fox Television, among others, interspersed with anecdotes of a host of the famed and ill-famed. A rollicking reveal of the vainglorious media and design worlds, candid and compelling.
