Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series: David Mitchell

The 2014/2015 Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series opens with novelist David Mitchell, author of The Bone Clocks. Called “a genius” by The New York Times Book Review, Mitchell has been named one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World by Time magazine. His previous work includes the mega-hit Cloud Atlas (winner of the British Book Award for Best Literary Fiction and shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize), Number9Dream (also shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize) and Ghostwritten.

Mitchell’s new release The Bone Clocks was called “a thing of beauty” by Publishers Weekly in a starred review and said to “take even greater risks at even greater length” by New York Magazine. A family saga that takes the reader from 1980s England to 2004 Baghdad, then to 2043 Ireland (following the collapse of society), Bone Clocks has already been longlisted for the Man Booker Prize.
