Paperback cover of Kim Stanley Robinson's NEW YORK 2140

“It’s near impossible to capture the vibrance of the entire city in the span of one single novel, yet Kim Stanley Robinson manages to do just that and more.”
Newsweek

“Like all great sci-fi, New York 2140 is as much inward-looking as it is forward-… Robinson’s work has a strong, intelligent social conscience.”
GQ

“Starkly beautiful and fundamentally optimistic.”
The Conversation

“Only sci-fi can drown Manhattan and make you want to live there.”
Bloomberg Businessweek

“There have been more than a few environmental catastrophe tales set in a future New York, but possibly none of them have been this interesting.”
Locus

“One of the most exciting books in climate change fiction yet written… Both immensely readable and timely.”
LitHub

The waters rose, submerging New York City.

But the residents adapted and it remained the bustling, vibrant metropolis it had always been. Though changed forever.

Every street became a canal. Every skyscraper an island.

Through the eyes of the varied inhabitants of one building Kim Stanley Robinson shows us how one of our great cities will change with the rising tides.

And how we too will change.
