David Mitchell: Utopia Avenue

Chris Charlesworth, Just Backdated, 24 July 2020

DAVID MITCHELL is a distinguished author whose books are regularly reviewed by fellow novelists in upmarket broadsheets. His best known work, Cloud Atlas, is a dazzling pyramid novel in which six interconnected, dreamlike stories are nested together, each beginning in the first half of the book before resolving conversely in its second half, so the first story reaches its denouement on the final page.
