At The Daily Beast he named five of his favorite books.
One title on the list:
The City & The City by China MiévilleRead about all five books on Mosley's list.
This book could be called a science-fiction novel but it is so much more than that. It’s a book about alienation, isolation, and the inability to see the world in which we live. It is a parable of modern-day life…and a warning. When I started reading China’s book I felt displaced, as if I didn’t belong on those pages or in that world. I soon realized that this was the feeling the author intended. He had gotten inside this text the true feeling of estrangement that the modern world enforces on its people.
