Product Details

Praise

“Baricco has inventiveness in spades, and his freaks have the capacity to chill the blood or warm the heart.” — Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Filled with wild invention and lyrical prose . . . Conventional characters and superheroes alike behave with the wild abandon we have come to recognize in the novels of Thomas Pynchon, Don De Lillo and Robert Coover. City is simultaneously hilarious and profoundly sad.” — The Washington Post Book World

“An imaginative, surprisingly poignant Italian reinvention of what has become a staple of American teen fiction: the saga of marginalized members of society who find comfort in each other.”– Booklist

“Along with flashes of love it reveals for old-fashioned storytelling, City boldly displays its futurist credentials…Baricco’s narrative virtuosity continues to astonish.” –The Independent (London)
