"Two days ago I finished The City & the City [by China Mieville]. It's really exceptionally good . . . It's probably the most original idea that I've come across in a long time. Mieville is known as a science fiction writer, but the book is more about the nature of reality and human interaction and perception than anything else. It's about two cities that coexist in the same exact spot, but the people are oblivious to each other.''

-- GWEN COOPER, author of Homer's Odyssey

That's Homer, her blind cat, over there with her!

The City and The City was indeed a great read. Much more accessible than his earlier work (although that's not saying much: it's still a bit of a mind-bender that requires some sticking around through wonky early parts.)
