Breve biografia
David Stephen Mitchell (born 12 January 1969) is an English novelist and screenwriter.

He has written nine novels, two of which, number9dream (2001) and Cloud Atlas (2004), were shortlisted for the Booker Prize. He has also written articles for several newspapers, most notably for The Guardian, and translated several books about autism from Japanese to English.

Following the release of the 2012 film adaptation of Cloud Atlas, Mitchell started working as a screenwriter alongside Lana Wachowski, one of Cloud Atlas' three directors; together with Aleksandar Hemon, they wrote the series finale of the television series Sense8 and the upcoming film The Matrix 4.

Mitchell was born in Southport in Lancashire (now Merseyside), England, and raised in Malvern, Worcestershire. He was educated at Hanley Castle High School and at the University of Kent, where he obtained a degree in English and American Literature followed by an M.A. in Comparative Literature.

Mitchell lived in Sicily for a year, then moved to Hiroshima, Japan, where he taught English to technical students for eight years, before returning to England, where he could live on his earnings as a writer and support his pregnant wife.

David Mitchell contributed the unpublished manuscript for 2015 to the Future Library project, of "From me flows what you call time". See the Guardian article; also the Bookseller article.

Recensioni

Un horror classico, scritto molto bene e con una storia abbastanza originale. Molto corto si legge in poco tempo. Non leggetelo se non siete amanti dell'horror, potrebbe non piacervi.
