The Bone Clocks feels like it might be the book David Mitchell has been building to since the beginning of his career as a novelist. In books like Ghostwritten (his first) and Cloud Atlas (his best), Mitchell has woven globe-hopping, history-spanning narratives of interconnection, staking his claim in the daring notion that we are all—across time, across space, across culture—reading from the same script. 728 more words
The University of Wisconsin Press blog has both a review of David Mitchell's (author of Cloud Atlas) new book, The Bone Clocks, and brief interview with Mitchell. The Bone Clock "follows a central character’s life through six decades in six sections." Some of the sections follow the protagonist Holly Sykes while others allow other characters to tell her story through their interactions with her. Check out Paul A. Harris's review of Mitchell's book.
