Praise
"[B]road vistas, intricately imagined futures, poetic language that transports and delights, a blend of mysticism and science that thrills and moves....To read McDonald is to fall in love with a place and to become drunk with it....If you've never read him, you're in for a treat. If you're a fan like me, you'll be delighted anew. What a wonderful, wonderful book."
"[A]mbitious, harrowing....[A]n audacious look at the shift in the power centers of the world and an intense vision of one possible future."
From the Publisher
Annotation Ian McDonald moulds a wild, yet wholly believable near-future in his novel THE DERVISH HOUSE, set in a fast-moving, boom-and-bust Turkey in the year 2027. Political instability, terrorism, and rampant over-population provide a backdrop for the masterfully and magically interwoven stories of six individuals: a young woman from the country with her high-sights set on the nanotech industry, a disgraced Greek economist, a broker who is on the brink of hitting it big, a cloistered and sickly young boy, an antiques dealer, and the founder of a neo-Dervish order of Sufi Islam. As these characters' lives gradually intertwine, McDonald offers his readers glimpses of an intoxicating yet troubled future, where mystical concerns, high-tech wizardry, and cut-throat commercialism create a world where the unexpected can happen.
