No, not the country. China Mieville. In case you don’t know the name, he’s written several great books, including Perdido Street Station and Un Lun Dun, a YALSA Best Books for Young Adults award winner.
His latest, The City & The City, is a little darker and more adult, and has gotten a few great reviews in PW, Booklist, and Library Journal. Now he’s going to tell you about it in this video produced especially for librarians.
