From the publisher:
‘A magnificent novel… A satire of quite astonishing originality…’
– British Science Fiction Association
A unique dystopia, a remarkable psychological fantasy, an absurdist satire, City of O is republished for the first time since 2005 in this totally new edition.
Arriving orphaned in the City of O, traumatised Juan enters a corrupting world of whimsical plastic surgery, bespoke narcotics and berserk tech-sex.
He ascends the social hierarchy, gaining money and power until the city thrills to his every move — but he’s falling apart and perhaps only the picaresque troupe of troubadours adventuring comically across the desert to find him can help.
