Summary
"10 short stories, most notably "The new," a brand new story created expressly for this book. It's Kaczynski's longest story to date. "The new" is set in an un-named third-world megalopolis. It could be Dhaka, Lagos, or Mumbai. The city creaks under the pressure of explosive growth. Whole districts are built in a week. The story follows an internationally renowned starchitect as he struggles to impose his vision on the metropolis. A vision threatened by the massive dispossessed slum-proletariat inhabiting the slums and favelas on the edges of the city. From the fetid ferment of garbage dumps and shanties emerges a new feral architecture"--Publisher website
