A River Called Time

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

A monumental speculative fiction story of love, loyalty, politics, and conscience, set in parallel Londons.

Newland...imagines a world where colonialism never happened at all...It's speculative fiction that genuinely made me speculate.

--Wired

A dystopian multiverse imagined at thrilling scale...Extraordinary...The excitement lies largely in its ideas about power and personal responsibility.

--Times Literary Supplement

Newland has produced a text that piques and provokes, providing a guidebook to worlds both uncomfortably familiar and radically new.

--Strange Horizons

An immersive speculative novel set in a dystopian city that's facing an uprising.

--Foreword Reviews, a Book of the Day selection

What would London be like if the UK had not colonized half the world? That's the question that drives Courttia Newland's A River Called Time. When young Markriss has the opportunity to move into the Ark--a massive structure that promises a utopian existence for the invited--he takes it, only to find that the world of his dreams isn't as idyllic as he was promised.

--Bustle

Part sci-fi, fantasy, and Afro-futurism but not squarely one or the other, A River Called Time transports the reader into a London undone by time, a London of possibility and, necessarily, of new villains.

--Public Books

No one can doubt the sheer energy and verve of Newland's vision.

--The Guardian (UK), Book of the Day selection

This mystical coming-of-age tale...is sure to please fans of thought-provoking speculative fiction.

--Publishers Weekly

This is an ambitiously imagined book that, by removing the European lens on African cultures, creates a new reality that allows us to question how we view our own. Complex and multilayered, this novel opens the door to the possibilities of noncolonial worlds.

--Kirkus Reviews

A River Called Time is ambitious, sprawling, unpredictable and fascinating...A relentlessly imaginative novel about a world where colonialism and slavery never occurred and yet brutal inequality persists.

--Shelf Awareness

Courttia Newland is a formidable writer...And his latest work, A River Called Time, is an extraordinary piece of speculative fiction...Newland offers a brilliant remix of history...This may be a work of speculative fiction but its critical lens is present and prescient.

--Financial Times, reviewed by Imani Perry

The Ark was built to save the lives of the many, but rapidly became a refuge for the elite, the entrance closed without warning.

Years after the Ark was cut off from the world--a world much like our own, but in which slavery has never existed--a chance of survival within the Ark's confines is granted to a select few who can prove their worth. Among their number is Markriss Denny, whose path to future excellence is marred only by a closely guarded secret: without warning, his spirit leaves his body, allowing him to see and experience a world far beyond his physical limitations.

Once inside the Ark, Denny learns of another with the same power, whose existence could spell catastrophe for humanity. He is forced into a desperate race to understand his abilities, and in doing so uncovers the truth about the Ark, himself, and the people he thought he once knew.
