Summary (From the publisher):

The city of Earth is steadily winching its way forward on tracks picked up and laid anew every day, for if it were to stand still it would be swept away in the constant southward movement of the land itself. The inhabitants of the city have been moving the city for 200 years, waiting always to be rescued by the mother planet, Earth, from which they have somehow been separated.
