Mitchell's debut novel, Ghostwritten, won the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize, which honours the best book published by a writer under 35. After the flyaway success of number9dream and then Cloud Atlas, Mitchell was named one of Granta’s Best Young British Novelist and one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential people.
So the excitement that has surrounded his latest work is unsurprising. The Bone Clocks is an engrossing, multi-faceted thriller that explores the delicate lines between life and death, and reality and fantasy. From a strange encounter between teenage runaway Holly and a desperate, mysterious woman, the narrative span’s Holly’s life over six sections and weaves into a metaphysical exploration of mortality and murder.
