The Dancers at the End of Time

This one of the most interesting and fun books in modern fantasy, a comedy, a satire, a love story, a retelling of Adam and Eve, and tribute to the fin de siecle of Wilde and Huysmans (and also Wells and Dunsany) An uptight Victorian women in a post-human(and post-morality) future(resembling a description of a Bosch painting much of the time) and her tumultuous courting by Jherek Carnelian through time and past the end of the world. Genocidal aliens, ridiculous London cops, living cities, robot nannies, HG. Wells himself, and other weirdness and fun.
