Reviews

"Beautiful, stunningly realized . . . [The Last Days of New Paris] is a brief vacation in alien latitudes, a midnight layover in an imaginary place."--NPR

"A thoughtful, highbrow novella . . . Miéville's self-assured style offers up a strong sense of humanity, while the strange Surrealist monsters give Last Days a fun and complementary mad-science component."--USA Today

"[A] testament to the necessary, progressive power of art . . . Both moving and disturbingly timely."--Newsday

"A novel both unhinged and utterly compelling, a kind of guerrilla warfare waged by art itself, combining both meticulous historical research and Miéville's unparalleled inventiveness."--Chicago Tribune

"An extraordinarily original work that foregrounds Mieville's considerable ingenuity and innovation."--The Millions

"Hauntingly poetic, strangely beautiful, and erratically intense."--San Francisco Book Review

"Dazzling . . . quite a feat."--The Guardian
