The City & the City
From Library Staff
Simultaneously police procedural, science fiction parable, and political intervention, The City & The City is one of Mieville's more accessible and trenchant works.
Imagine two cities occupying the same space, with the citizens of one not allowed to "see" the others or the buildings, then add to the mix a murder mystery that crosses those borders.

I as turned, I saw past the edges of the estate to the end of GunterStrasz, between the drity brick buildings.
Trash moved in the wind. It might be anywhere. An elderly woman was walking slowly away from me in a shambling sway. She turned her head and looked at me. I was struck by her motion, and I met her eyes. I wondered if she wanted to tell me something. In my glance I took in her clothes, her way of walking, of holding herself, and looking.
With a hard start, I realised that she was not on GunterStrasz at all, and that I should not have seen her.
