Losing Utopia (HUM425)

I’ve amended the syllabus to reflect the unavailability of Towfik’s Utopia. It’s a real shame, in my view, that we won’t be able to discuss this book, but China Mieville’s The City and the City is one of the most intelligent and original speculative fiction (slipstream?) novels I’ve read in ages. The new assignment for 2/25, then, is to read as much of Mieville’s The City and the City as you can. Odds are that if you make the effort you can find a used copy around town. Consult the course information page for recommendations for local bookstores in SF.

China Mieville, The City and the City (UK 2009) 978-0345497529
