China Mieville's Sex and the City and the City:

"Carrie was naked except for her blue Manolo Blahnik heels.

Mr. Big couldn't see her."

    The China MiĆ©ville treatment wouldn't be complete without an extended hallucinatory sequence that wallows in its setting until you've forgotten that there's actually a plot in there, and have to find it like some little boy coming down on Christmas day to find his living room piled with horse manure – just dive in, there got to be a pony in here somewhere!

    as a rabid, died-in-the-wool socialist, he's probably frothing at the mouth at the juxtaposition . . .

    I only wish I knew anybody I could tell that joke to without having to explain it. I shall savour it inwardly.

    @david – CM's not particularly rabid. Anyway I don't *think* this the kind of thing non-imaginary socialists get angry about; child poverty maybe.

    CM is a FOAF of mine (although one of those links is tenuous – an e-friend). Anyway, the word on the street is that he's a thoroughly decent non-doctrinaire individual. Or, at least, his doctrinaireness doesn't make him indecent.

    PeeDub , Karl Erich Martell , scav :

    When I stumbled into the idea of the juxtaposition I thought it was the funniest thing ever, and had the EXACT same response as scav: "this is great – but no one will get it". Then I thought: "if I post it to Popehat 99% of the people will have no idea what I'm talking about…but two or three will."

    Thanks for confirming my hunch! ;-)
