Un Lun Dun

by: China Mieville

Publisher: Del Rey Books (2007)


Staff Pick by comrade: QW

Definitely my favorite of Miéville's books. It takes the traditional prophecy narrative and smashes it to bits. What's left is a dorky, sarcastic 12 year old girl and her friends. In a city that is London and not, a working class kid takes on the physical manifestation of the London smog. So good.
