The City & The City

China Mieville’s ‘The City & The City’ is an unconventional urban fantasy that blurs the lines between reality and illusion. The plot revolves around the investigation of Inspector Tyador Borlú into the death of a woman in the eponymous twin cities of Beszel and Ul Qoma. These intertwined yet distinct cities impose ‘unseeing’ each other’s domain as a strict social norm. The book masterfully plays with themes of division, political complexities, and societal norms, drawing the reader into a world of uncanny co-existence and mystery.
