Short biography
Information from the Spanish Common Knowledge. Edit to localize it to your language.
Miéville nació en Willesden, un barrio de clase trabajadora al noroeste de Londres, donde ha vivido desde la infancia. Creció junto a su madre, que era profesora, y su hermana. Sus padres se separaron justo después de su nacimiento, de manera que Miéville suele decir que nunca ha conocido a su padre realmente. A los 18 años, en 1990, se marchó a Egipto, donde permaneció un año enseñando inglés. Allí desarrolló un creciente interés por la cultura árabe y la política de Oriente Medio.
