Kurzbiographie
Miéville nació en Willesden, un barrio de clase trabajadora al noroeste de Londres, donde ha vivido desde la infancia. Creció junto a su madre, que era profesora, y su hermana. Sus padres se separaron justo después de su nacimiento, de manera que Miéville suele decir que nunca ha conocido a su padre realmente. A los 18 años, en 1990, se marchó a Egipto, donde permaneció un año enseñando inglés. Allí desarrolló un creciente interés por la cultura árabe y la política de Oriente Medio.

Rezensionen

Though I suspect that it isn't always easy to make a picture of this sci-fi world of china mieville. Since language is an essential part of this novel it becomes a map of the story too.… (mehr)
