WINNER OF THE WOMEN'S PRIZE 2021 WINNER OF THE KITSCHIES' 2021 SHORTLISTED FOR THE COSTA NOVEL OF THE YEAR AWARD A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER CHOSEN AS A BOOK OF THE YEAR BY THE THE TIMES, GUARDIAN, OBSERVER, DAILY TELEGRAPH, FINANCIAL TIMES, i PAPER, NEW STATESMAN, SPECTATOR, TIME MAGAZINE, TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT, BBC CULTURE, NETGALLEY AND THE CHURCH TIMES The spectacular new novel from the bestselling author of JONATHAN STRANGE & MR NORRELL, one of our greatest living authors New York Magazine Piranesi lives in the House. Perhaps he always has. In his notebooks, day after day, he makes a clear and careful record of its wonders: the labyrinth of halls, the thousands upon thousands of statues, the tides that thunder up staircases, the clouds that move in slow procession through the upper halls. On Tuesdays and Fridays Piranesi sees his friend, the Other. At other times he brings tributes of food to the Dead. But mostly, he is alone. Messages begin to appear, scratched out in chalk on the pavements. There is someone new in the House. But who are they and what do they want? Are they a friend or do they bring destruction and madness as the Other claims? Lost texts must be found; secrets must be uncovered. The world that Piranesi thought he knew is becoming strange and dangerous. The Beauty of the House is immeasurable; its Kindness infinite. ***** 'What a world Susanna Clarke conjures into being Piranesi is an exquisite puzzle-box' DAVID MITCHELL It subverts expectations throughout Utterly otherworldly Guardian 'Piranesi astonished me. It is a miraculous and luminous feat of storytelling' MADELINE MILLER Brilliantly singular Sunday Times 'A gorgeous, spellbinding mystery This book is a treasure, washed up upon a forgotten shore, waiting to be discovered' ERIN MORGENSTERN Head-spinning Fully imagined and richly evoked Telegraph

    Denna bok är nu min favorit. Jättebra, mysig och otrolig. Rekommenderar den till alla. Rekommenderar också att man inte ska läsa något om själva storyn utan bara sätta sig ner och läsa den.

Reminds us of fictions power to take us to another world and expand our understanding of this one * Guardian, Autumn highlights * It has a daring and a grace that are quietly, transportingly spectacular. If you were looking for a book that distils the concept of wonder, this is the one: it feels like a work of pure generosity -- KATHERINE RUNDELL * GUARDIAN, Best summer books * Its always great to have some fiction to heartily recommend, and while theres been stiff competition this year, Piranesi by Susanna Clarke has won out in the end. A masterful work of weird fiction, its a novel that grips, perplexes and moves you, usually all at once! * Observer, The Best Books of 2020 * The fiction, nonfiction and poetry that deepened our understanding, ignited our curiosity and helped us escape For fantasy readers often eager to get lost in mystical worlds and escape the complications of real life, Piranesis predicament deeply resonates * Time, Books of the Year * The long-anticipated second novel from the author of 2004s best-seller Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is a philosophical fantasy. Piranesi (the name is one of several allusions to the 18th century) spends his days interpreting coded messages left around a labyrinthine villa filled with seabirds and symbolic statues * Financial Times, Books of the Year * Susanna Clarkes new novel is a beguiling study of isolation and exile ... To say more would be to ruin one of the years more unusual reading experiences * i paper, Books of the Year 2020 * This tale of weird enchanted halls is close to perfect * The Times, Books of the Year * A warm book about losing and finding oneself; about what humanity could have lost in the process of becoming rational * BBC.com * Purely joyful reading a delight - as if Borges wrote a novel with a beginning, middle and satisfying end -- Naomi Alderman * Spectator, Books of the Year * My absolute favourite book of the year by miles ... it took root in me -- Jenny Colgan * Spectator, Books of the Year * Like Hilary Mantel, Clarke made the very notion of genre seem quaint ... Piranesi is a tenebrous study in solitude A remarkable feat, not just of craft but of reinvention * Guardian * Susanna Clarke's first novel since 2004's Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell was more than worth the sixteen-year wait. Full of the magic and mayhem you might expect, Piranesi introduces a labyrinth to savour * NetGalley UKs Top Ten Books of 2020 * Susanna Clarke's long-awaited Piranesi is utterly compelling bewildering, intense, moving, shocking, combining a haunting fantasy with sharp insights about a culture of domination, hierarchy and rivalry and about how the imagination can survive in such a world -- Rowan Williams * New Statesman Books of the Year * Like a thriller Compelling A fever dream - disorientating, engrossing, persistently strange It burrows into the subconscious, throwing out puzzles long after the final page Brilliantly singular * Sunday Times * Exhilarating and hallucinatory, a mystery told backwards and inside-out. How she does it I've no idea; it's as though most minds are cameras, but Clarke's is a kaleidoscope -- Melissa Harrison * New Statesman, Books of the Year * Brilliantly peculiar It subverts expectations throughout Utterly otherworldly * Guardian * The publication of Susanna Clarke's Piranesi confirms her status as one of the greatest and most interesting writers of fantasy in the past hundred years or more * Times Literary Supplement, Books of the Year * A gently comic, thoroughly beguiling read The House - its upper rooms lost in clouds, its lower chambers drowned by the sea - will haunt my dreams * Daily Mail * The most curious confection Blending elements of mythology and fantasy, with nods along the way to CS Lewis and Tolkien Genuinely moving climax that throws open the doors of the halls in more ways than one * i pape
