Product description

Review

"By itself, a fascinating meditation on the choices which alter lives and the course of history; in the context of Walton's other novels, positively mind-bending."―Kirkus, starred review

"Brilliant, compelling, and frankly unputdownable." ―NPR on The Just City

"Rendered with Walton's usual power and beauty...It's this haunting character complexity that ultimately holds the reader captive to the tale." ―N. K. Jemisin, New York Times, on My Real Children

"Has as much in common with an Alice Munro story as it does with, say, Philip K. Dick's The Man in the High Castle." ―Lev Grossman, Publishers Weekly, on My Real Children

"Walton shines, as she always does, in the small and hurtful and glorious business of interpersonal relationships...this book about philosophy, history, gender and freedom also manages to be a spectacular coming-of-age tale that encompasses everything from courtroom dramas to sexual intrigue." ―Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing on The Just City

"A remarkable novel of ideas...Superb. In the end, the novel does more than justice to the idea of the Just City." ―Booklist, starred review, on The Just City
