A Conversation with David Mitchell

Éditions Alto and the Quebec Writers’ Federation are delighted to present a special Salon dans la ville event featuring former Giller Prize winner Sean Michaels in conversation with the internationally renowned author of Cloud Atlas, David Mitchell.
The New Yorker has compared David Mitchell to Nabokov and Saramago and called him “one of the few writers whose disposition for artifice is truly supernatural.” He has been shortlisted twice for the Man Booker Prize, notably for his novel Cloud Atlas, which was adapted for the screen in 2012 by Lilly and Lana Wachowski and Tom Tykwer. In 2018, he received the Sunday Times Award for Literary Excellence, which honors an author’s entire body of work. His most recent novel is Utopia Avenue (2020).
