Publisher Description

Three-time Hugo Award-winning and New York Times bestselling author N.K. Jemisin crafts her most incredible novel yet, a "glorious" story of culture, identity, magic, and myths in contemporary New York City.

In Manhattan, a young grad student gets off the train and realizes he doesn't remember who he is, where he's from, or even his own name. But he can sense the beating heart of the city, see its history, and feel its power.

In the Bronx, a Lenape gallery director discovers strange graffiti scattered throughout the city, so beautiful and powerful it's as if the paint is literally calling to her.

In Brooklyn, a politician and mother finds she can hear the songs of her city, pulsing to the beat of her Louboutin heels.

And they're not the only ones.

Every great city has a soul. Some are ancient as myths, and others are as new and destructive as children. New York? She's got six.

A good read with one issue

Compelling story. Well written characters. Beautiful linguistic style. One knock was that the reader was expected to take large leaps of faith as the explanation for what was happening and how it was happening was somewhat murky.

The novel which never became

Very disappointing work of absurdist fiction. 3/4 of the book is prelude, and flowery exposition, which never amounts to anything. The rules of the novel are never explained. A handful of ordinary people become the boroughs of New York City, to fight off an inter dimensional ‘woman in white’. Really. That’s it. It never makes any sense. I was born and raised in NYC. Nothing about this work rings true.
