Ghostwritten by David Mitchell
Book DescriptionWinner of the Mail on Sunday/John Llewellyn Rhys Prize. A magnificent achievement and an engrossing experience, David Mitchell's first novel announced the arrival of one of the most exciting writers of the twenty-first century. An apocalyptic cult member carries out a gas attack on a rush-hour metro, but what links him to a jazz buff in downtown Tokyo? Or to a Mongolian gangster, a woman on a holy mountain who talks to a tree, and a late night New York DJ? Set at the fugitive edges of Asia and Europe, Ghostwritten weaves together a host of characters, their interconnected destinies determined by the inescapable forces of cause and effect.

UK Kirkus Review » More of an experience that a novel, Mitchell's book's huge cast play off one another to dazzling efect. Set in the shadowlands and margins of Asia and Europe, stories intermingle with a bewildering and awe-inspiring brilliance. Ghostwritten becomes a melting pot into which are tossed a Japanese jazz fan, island cities, a Mongolian mobster, Buddha, 'The White Album', Ulan Bator's Grand Central Station and much much more. All the elements in this engrossing novel combine to form a masterpeiece which draws the reader into a world where everyone and everything has its own story to tell. (Kirkus UK)
