Mieville, China -- Un Lun Dun
The last author I'd ever think of allowing in front of children pulls
off a fine childrens' story. Much creepy scenery and verbal
cleverness; also a deft and deftly-used awareness of the tropes of
kids' fantasy. Easy to compare to Gaiman's Neverwhere, but I'll
happily throw Roald Dahl into the matchup.
