“If any readers have doubted that David Mitchell is phenomenally talented and capable of vaulting wonders on the page, they have been heretofore silent. . . . His best-known book Cloud Atlas is one of those how-the-holy-hell-did-he-do-it? modern classics that no doubt is -- and should be -- read by any student of contemporary fiction . . . [The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet] confirms Mitchell as one of the more fascinating and fearless writers alive." Dave Eggers, The New York Times Book Review

David Mitchell is one of the most popular and phenomenally talented novelists of our age. From the astonishing Cloud Atlas to Number9Dream, from Black Swan Green to his most recent novel The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, he has shown a breathtaking virtuosity with language, rhythm, genre, characterisation and insight into human behaviour. And he’s one of the nicest men you could ever hope to meet. David talks with Emily Perkins.
