It is this tension between becoming “faceless” ( dismembered) and seen ( re-membered) that drives the novel.But O’Sullivan riffs on this newness, and in a refreshing shift of binaries, it no longer just Beijing legislation that has transformed the city into the “dystopian vision”, but the city’s own immune system.
