Praise

“A brave new book for a brave new world—fueled by a brilliant imagination and buoyed by beautifully descriptive writing.”USA Today
 
“[David Mitchell] has a gift for fiction’s natural pleasures—intricate surprises, insidiously woven narratives, ingenious voices.”The New York Times Book Review
 
“Elegantly composed, gracefully plotted and full of humor.”Los Angeles Times
 
“Unlike so many of the chroniclers of the twenty-first-century pastiche—an industry dominated by ad men and feature-writers, not novelists—Mitchell has set out to craft actual characters, not archetypes. The result is a dazzling piece of work.”The Washington Post
 
“Mitchell deftly sketches each character to such a compelling extent that you become totally immersed. . . . His nine characters and their random but fateful interactions provide a playful, suspenseful foray into our ever-shrinking world.”Entertainment Weekly
 
“An intricately assembled Fabergé egg of a novel, full of sly and sometimes beautiful surprises. . . . In an era in which much literary fiction is characterized by unearned ironies and glib cynicism, it’s hard not to be impressed by the humanism that animates Mitchell’s book.”New York
 
“Gripping and innovative. . . . [Ghostwritten serves] to illustrate the strange interconnectivity of the modern world and the improvisatory nature of fate.”The New York Times
 
“A daring novel, uniquely structured and just as uniquely compelling.”The Denver Post
