This is a different kind of fantasy, a fantasy of dislocation and uncertainty, set in a near-contemporary time, in a place where two cities from different countries simultaneously occupy the same space (or do they?) and the events that bring the paradox into sharp relief and test the mettle of a police inspector and his ability to deal with the individuals who police the rule about not acknowledging one city while living in the other. Absolutely fascinating.
