"A breathtaking work of imagination and storytelling... making the case for Anders as this generation's LeGuin." Andrew Sean Greer, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Less
From Charlie Jane Anders, the Hugo and Nebula award-winning author of All the Birds in the Sky, comes The City in the Middle of the Nighta far future novel of a colonized world affixed into timeless regions of day and night, and of the woman caught between humanity's light and darkness
January is a dying planet, where the tidal-locked sun never sets, incurring a frigid darkness anywhere the burning light fails to touch. The human race clings to life in two great cities in the dim space between extremes--but the cities themselves have begun to crumble, and society is becoming as unforgiving and hostile as the environment around them.
Sophie, a student and reluctant revolutionary, becomes suddenly a pariah, sacrificed to the night, saved only by forming an unusual bond with the enigmatic beasts who roam the ice. But her fate is not yet written, and Sophie's ensuing journey will not only lead her to her true purpose, but change the entire world.
