The Twenty-Seventh City MP3 CD – Unabridged, 25 August 2015
Enhance your purchase
St. Louis, Missouri, is a quietly dying river city until it hires a new police chief: a charismatic young woman from Bombay, India, named S. Jammu. No sooner has Jammu been installed, though, than the city's leading citizens become embroiled in an all-pervasive political conspiracy. A classic of contemporary fiction, The Twenty-Seventh City shows us an ordinary metropolis turned inside out, and the American dream unraveling into terror and dark comedy.

MehReviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 May 2013
Loved the Corrections, Freedom less so. This was OK, but the dream scape-like setting and plot didn't work for me. What I loved about the Corrections was its witty and dry tone, The Twenty-Seventh City wasn't for me.

Story is a bit slow!
Interesting, but not unputdownableReviewed in Canada on 20 July 2014
I read this book after Corrections and I must say I was disappointed, it does not have the same reach. Interesting and witty at times, but the central theme is too dramatic and unrealistic. In Corrections one is transposed in the story, whereas in the 27th city one remains a spectator wondering what the fuss is about. Jonathan's writing is superb, one can see undoubtedly his skill.
