When setting looms large, readers close a book missing the location within as much as they miss its characters. From sprawling South Asian capitals to ancient Australian wilderness, these writers have infused cities and landscapes with prismatic personalities and swathes of the fantastic, resulting in gripping reads where the setting is the star.

Saat latar menjadi hal yang paling penting, pembaca yang menutup buku kehilangan lokasi sebanyak mereka kehilangan karakternya. Dari ibu kota Asia Selatan yang luas hingga hutan belantara Australia kuno, para penulis ini telah merambah kota-kota dan lanskap dengan kepribadian prismatik dan petak-petak yang fantastis, menghasilkan bacaan yang khas di mana latar adalah bintangnya.
