A Conversation with David Mitchell

24 November at 19:00 20:00 EST

Free, no registration required, and open to the public.


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).
