Product description

From the Publisher

<p>China Mieville lives and works in London. He is two-time winner of the prestigious Arthur C Clarke Award (<b><em>Perdido Street Station</em></b> and <b><em>The Scar</em></b>) and has also won the British Fantasy Award twice (<b><em>Perdido Street Station</em></b> and <b><em>Iron Council</em></b>). <b><em>The City & The City</em></b>, an existential thriller, was published in 2009 to dazzling critical acclaim and drew comparison with the works of Kafka and Orwell (The Times) and Phillip K Dick (The Guardian).</p>

About the Author

China Mieville has lived all his life in London. His first novel, King Rat, received superb reviews and was nominated for fantasy awards, and his second, Perdido Street Station, astonished the literary world with its imaginative power and sheer inventiveness. It won the Arthur C Clarke award and the British Fantasy Award in 2001.

The Scar followed that book in 2002, and in 2004, China's fourth novel, Iron Council was published. It won the Arthur C Clarke award for 2005. His most recent work is Looking for Jake.
