David Mitchell – Short Stories

September 30, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm


David Mitchell is the bestselling author of The Bone Clocks and Cloud Atlas. He is also co-translator of Naoki Higashida’s autism memoirs The Reason I Jump, Fall Down 7 Times, Get Up 8.

Mitchell’s novels reflect the fact that stories are made out of perspectives on events rather than the events themselves. They frequently cross time zones, locations, viewpoints and genres. Thriller, ghost story, science fiction, love story, fairytale may co-exist within a single book.
Twice shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, he was named one of the most influential people in the world by Time Magazine in 2007. In 2003 Mitchell was named as one of Granta’s best young novelists.

David will read two or three short stories on the subjects of gardens, autism and time’s elasticity. These stories are currently only available in spoken form for the Marlborough LitFest audience. The readings will be followed by Q&A.
