Robinson is one of the world's finest working novelists, in any genre.

Robinson's work has a strong, intelligent social conscienceRobinson seamlessly binds together characters and narrative strands . . . An immensely enjoyable reading experienceOnly sci-fi can drown Manhattan and make you want to live there
