SLADE HOUSE


SLADE HOUSE

DAVID MITCHELL    Book Number: 82594    Product format: Hardback

'This compact fantasy burns with classic Mitchellian energy. Painstakingly imagined and crackling with narrative velocity, it's a Dracula for the new millennium.' Slade House is a fractal offshoot of his remarkable 'The Bone Clocks', an eerie haunted house tale that takes as much from quantum mechanics as from traditional supernatural lore. Keep your eyes peeled for a small black iron door. Down the road from a working-class pub, along a narrow brick alley, you just might find the entrance to Slade House. A stranger will greet you by name and invite you inside. At first you won't want to leave. Later, you'll find you can't. Every nine years, the residents of Slade House extend an invitation to someone who's different or lonely: a precocious teenager, a recently divorced policeman, a shy college student. But what really goes on inside? For those who find out, it's already too late... Spanning decades, leaping genres and barrelling towards an astonishing conclusion, here is another brilliant tale from the author of 'Cloud Atlas'. US first edition hardback with cutaway front cover and desirable deckle edged pages. 238pp. Tiny remainder mark.
