New York 2140

New York 2140


‘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

The waters rose, submerging New York City.

But the residents adapted and it remained the bustling, vibrant metropolis it had always been. Though changed forever.

Every street became a canal. Every skyscraper an island.

Through the eyes of the varied inhabitants of one building Kim Stanley Robinson shows us how one of our great cities will change with the rising tides.

And how we too will change.

‘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 conscienceGQ

‘Only sci-fi can drown Manhattan and make you want to live there’ Bloomberg Business Week

Robinson seamlessly binds together characters and narrative strands . . . An immensely enjoyable reading experience
SciFiNow
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
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
Even at 600-plus pages, there's a leanness to the prose that keeps the plot moving forwards . . . Robinson handles setpieces with aplomb
SFX
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
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
Starkly beautiful and fundamentally optimistic
THE CONVERSATION
Only sci-fi can drown Manhattan and make you want to live there
BLOOMBERG BUSINESS WEEK
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
One of the most exciting books in climate change fiction yet written... Both immensely readable and timely
LITHUB
Utterly immersive and unexpectedly hopeful

This may well be Robinson's masterpiece and is surely the most important piece of sf in years
