Breve biografia
Miéville nació en Willesden, un barrio de clase trabajadora al noroeste de Londres, donde ha vivido desde la infancia. Creció junto a su madre, que era profesora, y su hermana. Sus padres se separaron justo después de su nacimiento, de manera que Miéville suele decir que nunca ha conocido a su padre realmente. A los 18 años, en 1990, se marchó a Egipto, donde permaneció un año enseñando inglés. Allí desarrolló un creciente interés por la cultura árabe y la política de Oriente Medio.

Recensioni

Mieville ha una grande inventiva ed originalità, ma in questo libro pecca di eccesso nelle descrizioni ambientali (anche diverse pagine alla volta), il che mi ha reso la lettura molto più pesante di quello che avrebbe potuto essere. Senza questo eccesso sarebbe stata una stella in più. Fortunatamente altre recensioni indicano che nelle sue opere successive la sua prosa è più tersa.

PS Questa recensione fa riferimento alla edizione inglese e non a quella tradotta da Fanucci
