David Mitchell: The Bone Clocks (2015)

UK author David Mitchell returns to the Festival following the publication of his Booker-longlisted The Bone Clocks. In this and other novels such as Cloud Atlas and Black Swan Green, he playfully uses realism, fantasy, timeshifts and interlocking stories to create some of the most engaging fiction around. Mitchell updates us on his writerly sojourns in conversation with Catherine Robertson.
