This chapter examines how the most recent wave of globalization has been inscribed in innovative travel writing about major metropolitan cities. It analyzes Rachel Lichtenstein and Iain Sinclair's Rodinsky's Room and Sam Miller's Delhi: Adventures in a Megacity and explains that both travel texts attempt to textualize the multivalent perspectives of megacities. This chapter contends that innovative travel texts about the global cities of London and Delhi can offer unique perspectives on the complexities of place in a hypermobile and rapidly changing world.

Keywords:   innovative travel writing, globalization, Rodinsky's Room, Rachel Lichtenstein, Iain Sinclair, Delhi: Adventures in a Megacity, Sam Miller, megacities, multivalent perspectives
