Black Swan Green: A Novel by David Mitchell


From the creator of Cloud Atlas, now a large motion image starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon, and Hugh grant, and directed by means of Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer

From astruggled-winning writer David Mitchell comes a sinewy, meditative novel of boyhood at the cusp of maturity and the vintage at the cusp of the new.

Black Swan green tracks a single twelve months in what's, for thirteen-twelve months-vintage Jason Taylor, the sleepiest village in muddiest Worcestershire in a dying Cvintage struggle England, 1982. but the thirteen chapters, each a short lived story in its own correct, create an exquisitely noticed world that is anything else however sleepy. a global of Kissingeresque realpolitik enacted in boys’ video games on a frozen lake; of “nightcreeping” at some stage in the summer time backyards of strangers; of the tabloid-fueled thrills of the Falklands struggle and its human toll; of the tough, luscious morning time Madden and her power-hungry boyfriend, Ross Wilcox; of a certain Madame Eva van Outryve de Crommelynck, an aged bohemian emigré who is each additional and less than she appears; of Jason’s seek to switch his lifeless grandfather’s irreplaceable smashed watch quicker than the crime is discovered; of first cigarettes, first kisses, first Duran Duran LPs, and primary deaths; of Margaret Thatcher’s recession; of Gypsies camping within the woods and the hysteria they encourage; and, even closer to home, of a slow-motion divorce in 4 seasons.

Pointed, funny, profound, left-field, elegiac, and painted with the stuff of existence, Black Swan green is David Mitchell’s subtlest and one of these lot environment friendly success up to now.
