Cloud Atlas signed by David Mitchell 1st / 1st 2004

£275.00Price

First edition and first print published by Sceptre in 2004. This is a fine / as new copy. The wrapper is not clipped and there is no wear at all to either the wrapper or the book. It is an immaculate collectors copy. It has the wraparound band also in fine condition. This copy has been signed and doodled on the title page by the author without dedication. Overall a fine copy and rare signed. 

 

This fantastical speculative fiction book consists of six interconnected nested stories that take the reader from the remote South Pacific in the nineteenth century to the island of Hawai'i in a distant post-apocalyptic future. The author has said that the book is about reincarnation and the universality of human nature, and the title references a changing landscape ('cloud') over manifestations of fixed human nature (the 'atlas'). The title was inspired by the piece of music of the same name by Japanese composer Toshi Ichiyanagi.
