Description

Praise for The City in the Middle of the Night

"A breathtaking work of imagination and storytelling... making the case for Anders as this generation's Le Guin." --Andrew Sean Greer, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Less

"An intimate portrait of people as much as it is a piece of culturally aware social scifi -- a look at our moment in history through a distorting lens of aliens and spaceships." --NPR

"Tragic, brave, and so very human...Anders dares to imagine something different, a better way forward." --Den of Geek

"Classic SF in the mode of Ursula K Le Guin or Octavia Butler....This is a millennial's novel, featuring young people trying to make their way through an uncaring, corrupt and intermittently violent world....Heartfelt and absorbing fiction." --The Guardian

"Anders has written a unique book, one that uses tropes found in old-school science fiction to comment on modern side effects of class structures" --Washington Post

"Original and gripping...The City in the Middle of the Night may be set light-years away, but it's likely to hit too close to home." --Paste

"An even stronger novel than Anders' Nebula Award-winning All the Birds in the Sky; a tale that can stand beside such enduring works as Ursula K. Le Guin's The Left Hand of Darkness, Frank Herbert's Dune, and Dan Simmons' Hyperion." --Booklist, starred review

"Anders contains multitudes; it's always a fascinating and worthwhile surprise to see what she comes up with next." --Kirkus, starred review

"An intricate tale of colonialism and evolution on both physical and social levels. Stunningly storytelling that will capture readers' minds and hearts." --Library Journal, starred review

"Intricate, embracing much of what makes a grand adventure: smugglers, revolutionaries, pirates, camaraderie, personal sacrifice, wondrous discovery, and the struggle to find light in the darkness. Breathlessly exciting and thought-provoking." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Absolutely memorable...terrifying and exciting... makes for a fascinating exploration of humanity and human relationships." --Hypable

"The kind of didactic, intelligent, critical fiction that interrogates the boundaries of our current moment through broad-scope questions...I couldn't recommend it more." --Tor.com

"A stunning novel." --Edan Lepucki, author of Woman No. 17

"A wildly inventive, inventively radical, radically subtle rush of a novel." --Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler's Wife

"Like a classic from another timeline... This book has notes of Ursula K. Le Guin and Philip Pullman." --Robin Sloan, author of Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

"The City in the Middle of the Night does everything right. I f--ing love this book. It is really, really breathtaking." --Daveed Diggs, Grammy and Tony Award winning actor

"A tale that unfolds with precision, presenting wholly original ideas, new and beautiful life forms, and chillingly extrapolated and corrupt societies. I highly recommend [it]." --Anthony Rapp, Broadway star
