His second novel, number9dream, was shortlisted for the Booker Prize and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, and in 2003, David Mitchell was selected as one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists. His third novel, Cloud Atlas, was shortlisted for six awards including the Man Booker Prize, and adapted for film in 2012. It was followed by Black Swan Green, shortlisted for the Costa Novel of the Year Award, and The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, which was a No. 1 Sunday Times bestseller. Both were also longlisted for the Booker. In 2013, The Reason I Jump: One Boy's Voice From the Silence of Autism by Naoki Higashida was published in a translation from the Japanese by David Mitchell and KA Yoshida. David Mitchell's sixth novel is The Bone Clocks (Sceptre, 2014).
    Review quote
    It knits together science fiction, political thriller and historical pastiche with musical virtuosity and linguistic exuberance: there won't be a bigger, bolder novel this year. -- Justine Jordan Guardian An impeccable dance of genres ... an elegiac, radiant festival of prescience, meditation and entertainment. -- Neel Mukherjee The Times His wildest ride yet ... a singular achievement, from an author of extraordinary ambition and skill -- Matt Thorne Independent on Sunday David Mitchell entices his readers onto a rollercoaster, and at first they wonder if they want to get off. Then - at least in my case - they can't bear the journey to end. -- AS Byatt Guardian Mitchell's storytelling in Cloud Atlas is of the best. I was, appropriately, captivated. -- Lawrence Norfolk Independent The best novel of the year so far ... a thrilling ride of a story -- Philip Hensher Observer Impeccably structured novel of ideas in many voices by a talent to watch. Literary Editor's Best Books, Observer Funny, exciting, imaginative and energetic -- Tim Lott Evening Standard
