I ran across this excellent review of one of my favorite books of 2010: China Mieville's THE CITY AND THE CITY and thought you should see it. Most especially if you haven't read the book yet. I'm not sure why a review this late in the day in the Boston Review, perhaps it's because of the paperback's publication by Del Rey. I am such a fan of Mieville that I am happy enough when he gets good press anytime. If you haven't yet acquainted yourself with China Mieville's writing, you need to do so. Check out the review and I'm sure you'll be intrigued.
Then take a look at this fascinating in-depth interview with Mieville done by BLDGBLOG.
