Cloud Atlas - 20th Anniversary Edition (HC) (Mitchell, David)

With an introduction by Gabrielle Zevin (author of Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow) and a new afterword by David Mitchell Souls cross ages like clouds cross skies . . . A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific Ocean in 1850. A disinherited composer conning his way into the home of a dying genius in interwar Belgium. A high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan's California. A vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors. The testament of a genetically modified 'dinery server' on death-row. And Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation. The narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other's echoes along the corridor of history - echoes that change destinies in ways great and small. In a globe-encircling narrative reaching from the nineteenth century to a post-apocalyptic future, Cloud Atlas erases the boundaries of time, genre and language to offer an enthralling vision of humanity's will to power, and where it will lead us.

David Mitchell
David Mitchell was born in Southport, Lancashire, in England, raised in Malvern, Worcestershire, and educated at the University of Kent, studying for a degree in English and American Literature followed by an M.A. in Comparative Literature. He lived for a year in Sicily, then moved to Hiroshima, Japan, where he taught English to technical students for eight years, before returning to England. After another stint in Japan, he currently lives in Ireland with his wife Keiko and their two children. Mitchell's first novel, Ghostwritten (1999), moves around the globe, from Okinawa to Mongolia to pre-Millennial New York City, as nine narrators tell stories that interlock and intersect. The novel won the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize (for best work of British literature written by an author under 35) and was shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award. In 2007, Mitchell was listed among Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in The World.
