Annotation

The novel is set in what remains of London after a series of climate-change catastrophes. It is divided between the “cincture,” a wealthy area protected from the climate, and Londonia where people get by as they can. The female protagonist wakes up in Londonia with much of her memory gone, and she makes a life for herself as a “finder” of artifacts from before the catastrophe which are traded within Londonia or sold/traded in the cincture. Uses an invented language that combines English with words derived mostly from French. There is a Glossary on 397-99
