ONE OF THE GUARDIAN’S BEST SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY BOOKS OF 2017

A surreal debut novel set in a world shaped by language in the tradition of Margaret Atwood and Ursula K. Le Guin.

Vanja, an information assistant, is sent from her home city of Essre to the austere, wintry colony of Amatka with an assignment to collect intelligence for the government. Right away she feels that something extraordinary is happening: people act oddly in Amatka, and citizens are monitored for signs of subversion.

Intending to stay just a short even as, Vanja falls in love with her housemate, Nina, and prolongs her discuss with. But when she stumbles on evidence of a growing threat to the colony, and a cover-up by its administration, she embarks on an investigation that puts her at tremendous risk.

In Karin Tidbeck’s world, everyone is suspect, no person is protected, and nothing—not even language, nor the very fabric of reality—may also be taken as a right. Amatka is a beguiling and wholly original novel about freedom, love, and artistic creation by a fascinating new voice.
