The gifted writer of genres-bending novels, David Mitchell has an atypical and breathtaking literary career. The New Yorker magazine compared him to Nabokov and Saramago and says that he is “one of the few writers whose disposition for artifice is truly supernatural”. He was shortlisted twice for the Man Booker Prize, notably for CLOUD ATLAS, which was adapted for the screen in 2012 by Lilly and Lana Wachowski and Tom Tykwer. He also co-wrote the final episode of the Netflix series Sens8 (2018) as well as Matrix Resurrections, the final chapter in The Matrix series (2021). In 2018, he received the Sunday Times Award for Literary Excellence which honors an author’s entire body of work. His books THE THOUSAND AUTUMN OF JACOB DE ZOET, THE BONE CLOCKS, and SLADE HOUSE are also published in French by Alto. UTOPIA AVENUE is his eighth novel.
