Paolo Bacigalupi's Bangkok, The Windup GirlRead about the other entries on the list.
Bacigalupi's Thailand manages to be geopolitically unique in a future that's both distant and familiar. And his Bangkok, a "drowning city" stands out in his dystopic Asia, where almost every other country is starving. This Bangkok is drowning in its own abundance, awash in gray and black marketeers.
The Windup Girl is among Annalee Newitz's lists of books to prepare you for the economic apocalypse and the 35 essential posthuman novels.
Writers Read: Paolo Bacigalupi.
