Gibson describes a vast mega-city, an out-of-control sprawl imagined through the metaphor of digitized information. His character has a global consciousness, even in his dreams.
The imagining of the urban experience has been the setting for many novels, and the mise-en-scene of countless films. Joyce’s Dublin in Ulysses (1922), Hemingway’s Paris in A Moveable Feast (1964), Doblin’s Berlin in Berlin Alexanderplatz (1929), Rushdie’s Mumbai in The Ground Beneath Her Feet (2000) or Wei Hui’s Shanghai in Shanghai Baby (1999) come to mind if we seek examples of literary versions of the urban imaginary in which the city is a metaphorical device that articulates the inherent tension between cosmopolitanism on the one hand and the slough of grimy despond on the other.
