WINNER OF THE 2011 ARTHUR C CLARKE AWARD

Lauren Beukes' tale of a young woman trapped in a brutal city but looking for a way out . . .


'A major, major talent' George R. R. Martin

***

Zinzi has a Sloth on her back, a dirty 419 scam habit and a talent for finding lost things. But when a little old lady turns up dead and the cops confiscate her last paycheque, she's forced to take on her least favourite kind of job - missing persons.

Being hired by reclusive music producer Odi Huron to find a pop star should be her ticket out of Zoo City, the festering slum where the criminal underclass and their animal companions reside.

Instead it catapults Zinzi deeper into the maw of a city twisted by crime and magic, where she'll be forced to confront the dark secrets of former lives - including her own.

Look out for AFTERLAND, the new novel by Lauren Beukes
