‘A towering novel’ – Guardian

‘Relevant and essential’ – Bloomberg Businessweek

As the sea level rose, every street became a canal, every skyscraper an island. For the residents of one apartment building in Madison Square, however, New York in the year 2140 is far from a drowned city.

New York Times bestselling author Kim Stanley Robinson delivers a bold and brilliant vision of New York in the next century.

Reviews

This may well be Robinson's masterpiece and is surely the most important piece of sf in years
MORNING STAR
Even at 600-plus pages, there's a leanness to the prose that keeps the plot moving forwards . . . Robinson handles setpieces with aplomb
SFX
Like all great sci-fi, New York 2140 is as much inward-looking as it is forward- . . . Robinson's work has a strong, intelligent social conscience
GQ
Robinson seamlessly binds together characters and narrative strands . . . An immensely enjoyable reading experience
SciFiNow
There have been more than a few environmental catastrophe tales set in a future New York, but possibly none of them have been this interesting
LOCUS
Utterly immersive and unexpectedly hopeful
RT BOOK REVIEWS
One of the most exciting books in climate change fiction yet written... Both immensely readable and timely
LITHUB
Robinson's writing is so evocative that you can imagine that any one of his paragraphs could feature in the film of the book . . . a thoughtful, innovative page turner
STARBURST
Only sci-fi can drown Manhattan and make you want to live there
BLOOMBERG BUSINESS WEEK
Robinson is one of the world's finest working novelists, in any genre. New York 2140 is a towering novel about a genuinely grave threat to civilisation
GUARDIAN
It's near impossible to capture the vibrance of the entire city in the span of one single novel, yet Kim Stanley Robinson manages to do just that and more
NEWSWEEK
Starkly beautiful and fundamentally optimistic
