Zoo City (MP3 CD)
Zinzi December has a Sloth on her back, a dirty 419 scam habit, and a talent for finding lost things. But when a little old lady turns up dead and the cops confiscate her last paycheck, she's forced to take on her least favourite kind of job: missing persons.
In "Zoo City" we have an unfamiliar land full of familiars, a broken city of the near-future peopled with damaged wonders. Lauren Beukes is a marksman in a world of drunken machine-gunners. Bill (Fables) Willingham
