We are thrilled that literary star David Mitchell will be joining us to introduce one of the most hotly anticipated literary novels of 2014, The Bone Clocks. One drowsy summer’s day in 1984, teenage runaway Holly Sykes encounters a strange woman who offers a small kindness in exchange for ‘asylum’. The Bone Clocks follows the twists and turns of Holly’s life from a scarred adolescence in Gravesend to old age on Ireland’s Atlantic coast, and decades later the slow realisation of her unwitting role in a murderous feud.

The Bone Clocks crackles with Mitchell’s customary wit and invention that has secured his place as one of the most celebrated writers of his generation.
