Review:

The closest fictional relatives of Sewer, Gas & Electric may not be books at all but visionary movies like Brazil and Blade Runner. A comic writer and Information Age social satirist of the first water, Matt Ruff has one of the most fertile imaginations you'll come across, and the confident chops to string the fruits of this inventive intelligence together. The story is set in a near-future Manhattan of mile-high skyscraper construction projects, eco-terrorism, man-eating mutant sewer-dwelling white sharks and even more dangerous corporations.

From the Inside Flap:

"A post-millennial spectacular-dizzyingly readable." -Thomas Pynchon" A turbocharged neo-Dickensian hot rod [with] plenty of intellectual horsepower." -Neal Stephenson
