She wrote a fantasy novel about a dystopian New York City. Then it came true

Sometimes, books come at exactly the right time, and that is certainly the case with "The City We Became," the first book in N.K. Jemisin's "Great Cities" trilogy. The fantasy novel is based on the idea that the essence of New York City is transferred to six humans -- each an avatar for the five boroughs and one for the city as a whole -- who must protect the city, and its people, from an intergalactic multi-dimensional threat that manifests as a gentrifying Woman in White. No one knows how the pandemic-battered New York will fare in the coming months or years, but Jemisin points to the solidarity and resiliency of the city.
