Daniel Polansky is one of my favorite new writers. Again and again, he manages to reinvent and invert well-worn genres. Imagine a mash-up of Trainspotting and Harry Potter and you might end up with something as wonderfully gonzo as A City Dreaming. M is a gloriously under-achieving, couch-surfing mage for the Instagram generation.
