So cool to see Zoo City included in this list in the Guardian of top ten cybercrime novels. Dan Malakin, author of The Box,
calls Zoo City a –

“[…] subversive banger of a novel by South African genre-smasher Lauren Beukes.”

Rad to see it included among more straight realist fare!

“What better way to round off a cybercrime Top 10 than with this subversive banger of a novel by South African genre-smasher Lauren Beukes. Set in an alternative Johannesburg where animal familiars are attached to criminals to mark them, it tells the story Zinzi, a lost-item psychic and 419 scammer (think emails from purported princes) who gets sucked into a murder mystery with wide resonance.”
