What to expect

**Pre-order UTOPIA AVENUE, the spectacular new novel from David Mitchell.**


Shortlisted for the Booker Prize 2001

The second novel from the critically-acclaimed author of GHOSTWRITTEN and CLOUD ATLAS.

As Eiji Miyake’s twentieth birthday nears, he arrives in Tokyo with a mission – to locate the father he has never met. So begins a search that takes him into the seething city’s underworld, its lost property offices and video arcades, and on a journey that zigzags from reality to the realm of dreams. But until Eiji has fallen in love and exorcised his childhood demons, the belonging he craves will remain, tantalizingly, just beyond his grasp.

(P)2020 Hodder & Stoughton Limited

Critics Review

  • Even more dazzling than GHOSTWRITTEN.

    Independent on Sunday
  • A delirious mix of thriller, tragedy, fantasy, video games and a portrait of uneasy modern Japan . . . A deserving Booker nominee.

    Guardian
  • Wildly inventive.

    Sunday Times
  • This Booker-shortlisted fantasia confirms the Hiroshima-based Mitchell as the most prodigally gifted of young British novelists … an extraordinary literary cabaret of dreams, visions and pastiches, from video-game rides and gangster rumbles to suicide submariners.

    Independent
  • Exceptional.
