Product description

Review

"I would trust Miéville about London." --Nicholas Lezard

"Miéville gives us a vision of a pre-apocalyptic London, where the chasm between rich and poor has reached catastrophic levels and anger is the only reasonable response." --Hari Kunzru

"China Miéville does more than reveal the skull beneath the London s scabby, piebald skin; he offers effervescent nourishment for the downpressed souls that stalk the streets of his divided city. Anybody who wants to know what has happened here in the ground zero of a failed neoliberal experiment must start with his unsettling panorama." --Paul Gilroy

"Powerful, visceral and original it s a document for our times." --New Internationalist

"A blistering essay account of the realities of a 21st-century London tilting into catastrophe as the inequality and oppression of the failed neo-liberal experiment bite and of the various shapes of its inhabitants mounting outrage." --Metro
