David Mitchell is widely renowned as one of the greatest British novelists of his generation, garnering comparisons to Tolstoy, Twain, DeLillo and Pynchon among others.

He has won the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize, the South Bank Show Literature Prize and the Richard and Judy Best Read of the Year prize. He has also been nominated for the Guardian First Book Award, the Booker Prize, the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, the Commonwealth Writer's Prize and the Costa Book Award.

Born in 1969, David grew up in Worcestershire and, after several years teaching in Japan, he now lives in Ireland with his wife and their two children.

His novel Cloud Atlas has been adapted into a film by Tom Twyker, Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski who also direct. You can watch the extended trailer here. David's highly-anticipated seventh book, The Bone Clocks, is due to be published in September 2014.
