Event preview: David Mitchell at First United Methodist Church in Ann Arbor this Sat., Nov. 7


David Mitchell's first three books —Ghostwritten (1999), number9dream (2001), and Cloud Atlas (2004)— are among the greatest one-two-three-punches in modern literary history. And while his books since Cloud Atlas might not be as crazily imaginative as those preceding it, it's obvious to anyone who's invested more than half an hour in any of his works that Mitchell is a flat-out genius with the ability to command any style at will.

He's reading from his latest work, Slade House (a decent review of it here), this Saturday, Nov. 7, at First United Methodist Church in Ann Arbor (sponsored by Literati). And while the entrance fee might seem steep at $30, well, that includes a copy of the book which you can then have signed after the event, if you care to.
