What an absolutely brilliant, extraordinary and wildly inventive fantasy adventure. Published in hardback in 2007 to huge acclaim, this will be devoured for everything ordinary in London becomes extraordinary here in Un lun dun. Fast-paced, bizarre, funny but scary, itâs just what Harry Potter fans have been looking for only itâs much better written.

If you like China Mieville you might also like to read books by Stephen Donaldson, Ray Bradbury and Neil Gaiman.

About the Author

China Mieville

China Miéville lives and works in London. He is three-time winner of the prestigious Arthur C. Clarke Award (Perdido Street Station, Iron Council and The City & The City) and has also won the British Fantasy Award twice (Perdido Street Station and The Scar). The City & The City, an existential thriller, was published in 2009 to dazzling critical acclaim and drew comparison with the works of Kafka and Orwell (The Times) and Philip K. Dick (Guardian). His most recent novel, Kraken, was published in 2010.

In 2010 China Miéville won the prestigious Arthur C. Clarke Award for his novel The City and the City, the first time in its history an author has won it three times.

Maxim Jakubowski's view on PERDIDO STREET STATION...
British author Miéville is one of the most adept practitioners when it comes to creating imaginary worlds and cities which are both alien and recognisable as an extrapolation of the world we live in. The urban and gothic New Crobuzon is a harbour for humans, mutants, magicians and every mysterious species under the sun. Old-fashioned storytelling taken off the leash and exhaustively inventive.
