Shortlisted for MHC’s Readers Retreat 2023. “Hopkinson’s debut possesses unusual currency… from its depiction of a near-future Toronto hollowed out at a broken centre—which reflects with eerie extremity the current experience of Detroit—to its profoundly intersectional themes of power, identity, and solidarity, the novel speaks to our moment somehow with a greater urgency than it may even have done at the time of its writing.” — Strange Horizons
