Urban Sprawl Gets to Kate and Pete

Kate Moss fled to Paris this week with half the British press on her tail and soon half of Paris is coming the other way as, this Friday, the Tour de France visits London for the first time.

For a certain class of people, nipping between world cities like London and Paris is an everyday event and for many others it's at least an annual one.

At the other end of the urban scale, some of the world's poorest people leave their parched rural homelands for the precarious life of the shanty town; by next year it is estimated that for the first time in history, more than half the world's humans will live in urban areas and half of those will be in shanties, slums and favelas.

These are among the themes explored in Global Cities, a fascinating and oddly moving exhibition at the Tate Modern (until the end of August) that looks at ten cities from around the world via photos and films, using London as a defining standard.

Meanwhile Kate's back in London, locked inside her gated community of one, following the departure of Pete Doherty, who is holed up with pals in a shack under a flyover. Who says celebrity culture doesn't mirror real life?

The Blue Zone Competition

The Blue ZoneAndrew Gross is no stranger to literary success. Along with James Patterson, Gross has co-authored five New York Times number one bestsellers, including Judge & Jury, Lifeguard, and Third Degree. Yet he may be one of the most successful thriller writers whose name you don't know...

Now, Gross is making his sensational solo debut with a tense, compelling novel that takes readers into a dangerous world-one where a man's betrayal has threatened the lives of the people he loves most. The Blue Zone is the riveting tale of a family forced into the Witness Protection Program and a young woman's perilous quest to uncover the dark secrets of her father's past. Filled with rich characters and an unstoppable plot that is at turns harrowing and emotionally wrenching, The Blue Zone is a story of blood and family, deception and betrayal that explores the deadly consequences when one family's tightly-held secrets begin to unravel.

Dear LondonNet,
Dropping the date from cinema listings is a bad idea - just saying week starting last friday or this friday leaves room for confusion, especially when search on a friday. Please revert.

Dear Paul,
Many thanks for your feedback.
I have forwarded your email to our IT department who will start working on the problem as soon as possible.
Kind regards,

Dear LondonNet,
Thanks Emilie, when I tried again and thankfully it was back to normal, so maybe just a display hitch.
best regards,
