His writing has been compared to Tolstoy's--but no, some argue, he's more like Nabokov. Or is it DeLillo? In a 2010 feature, the New Yorker asked, "What can't the novelist David Mitchell do?" Indeed, he's written a coming-of-age novel (Black Swan Green), LA noir, sea adventure, and dystopian science...
About to read David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas, because I just finished Black Swan Green and assume, given the hype, that he can do better.
A boy in his room: "My eye spidered over the poster of black angelfish turning into white swans, across over my map of Middle-earth, around my door frame, into my curtains, lit fiery mauve by my spring sun, and fell down the well of dazzle. Listening to houses breathe makes you weightless." -from 'Black Swan Green,' by David Mitchell (author of 'Cloud Atlas')

It's easier to change your eyeballs than your nickname. ~David Mitchell, Black Swan Green
true. Book very much a curate's egg. And more bad parts than good. Black Swan Green a much better David Mitchell novel.
I fretted all yesterday that my book club would be angry with me for picking David Mitchell's "Black Swan Green", but it turned out that they liked it more than I did. Next up: "The Swerve" by Stephen Greenblatt. Hey, we read good stuff!

Yes to this: David Mitchell's 'Black Swan Green' as this generation's 'Catcher in the Rye.'
Just finished reading a really good novel - "Black Swan Green" by David Mitchell. It will soon be back in the Perth-Andover library in the large print section. There are other books by the same author but only one other in large print.
I just finished British author David Mitchell's 2004 novel Cloud Atlas. Six interrelated stories in six different genres spanning a time period from from the 1850's to the post apocalyptic future. Masterfully written, ingeniously structured, imaginative and thoughtful. It is totally AWESOME! From the author of Black Swan Green and The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet. And as the book cover notes: Soon to be a Major Motion Picture!
"Not hurting people is ten bloody thousand times more bloody important than being right." — David Mitchell, Black Swan Green.
'Black Swan Green' by David Mitchell is a moving chronicle of a teenage boy's thirteenth year of life. Like 'Paddy Clarke' by Roddy Doyle, it highlights the difficult conundrum that an unstable/broken family puts on the children who get caught in between. Talk to the lovely ladies at Lesleigh Kenya if you would like to read it, they've started a small library too. Many more books just as good. Now Reading 'The Cossacks' by Leo Tolstoy.
My belated book week contribution (not randomly picked): "The amateur thinks his words, his paints, his notes make beauty. But the master knows his words are just the vehicle in which beauty sits." --David Mitchell, Black Swan Green
