"With The Bone Clocks, [David] Mitchell rises to meet and match the legacy of Cloud Atlas ."-- Los Angeles Times Following a terrible fight with her mother over her boyfriend, fifteen-year-old Holly Sykes slams the door on her family and her old life. But Holly is no typical teenage runaway: A sensitive child once contacted by voices she knew only as "the radio people," Holly is a lightning rod for psychic phenomena. Now, as she wanders deeper into the English countryside, visions and coincidences reorder her reality until they assume the aura of a nightmare brought to life.   For Holly has caught the attention of a cabal of dangerous mystics--and their enemies. But her lost weekend is merely the prelude to a shocking disappearance that leaves her family irrevocably scarred. This unsolved mystery will echo through every decade of Holly's life, affecting all the people Holly loves--even the ones who are not yet born.   A Cambridge scholarship boy grooming himself for wealth and influence, a conflicted father who feels alive only while reporting on the war in Iraq, a middle-aged writer mourning his exile from the bestseller list--all have a part to play in this surreal, invisible war on the margins of our world. From the medieval Swiss Alps to the nineteenth-century Australian bush, from a hotel in Shanghai to a Manhattan townhouse in the near future, their stories come together in moments of everyday grace and extraordinary wonder.   Rich with character and realms of possibility,  The Bone Clocks  is a kaleidoscopic novel that begs to be taken apart and put back together by a writer  The   Washington Post  calls "the novelist who's been showing us the future of fiction."   An elegant conjurer of interconnected tales, a genre-bending daredevil, and a master prose stylist, David Mitchell has become one of the leading literary voices of his generation. His hypnotic new novel,  The Bone Clocks,  crackles with invention and wit and sheer storytelling pleasure--it is fiction at its most spellbinding. Praise for The Bone Clocks   "One of the most entertaining and thrilling novels I've read in a long time." --Meg Wolitzer, NPR "[Mitchell] writes with a furious intensity and slapped-awake vitality, with a delight in language and all the rabbit holes of experience." -- The New York Times Book Review   "Intensely compelling . . . fantastically witty . . . offers up a rich selection of domestic realism, gothic fantasy and apocalyptic speculation." -- The Washington Post   "[A] time-traveling, culture-crossing, genre-bending marvel of a novel." -- O: The Oprah Magazine   "Great fun . . . a tour de force . . . [Mitchell] channels his narrators with vivid expertise." -- San Francisco Chronicle

Description
"A vast, intricate novel that weaves six narratives and spans from 1984 to the 2030s about a secret war between a cult of soul-decanters and a small group of vigilantes called the Night Shift who try to take them down. An up-all-night story that fluently mixes the super-natural, sci-fi, horror, social satire, and hearbreaking realism"--,Provided by publisher.
