Winner of the 2021 Women's Prize for Fiction A SUNDAY TIMES & NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 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

  1. Kanon!
    Christoffer Jensen, 17 juni 2023

    Otroligt väl skriven bok som är svårt att stänga på kvällarna när klockan slår över midnatt. I en väldigt intressant värld med teman och idéer som stannar kvar med en långt efter boken är läst.

  2. Fantastisk!
    Olivia, 3 december 2021

    Helt fantastisk bok. Bra språk, spännande med inslag av både humor och allvar. Kommer tänka på Piranesi och hans värld länge.

  3. Magi
    Martin Barle, 15 oktober 2021

Reminds us of fictions power to take us to another world and expand our understanding of this one * Guardian, Autumn highlights * I could have lived in the first hundred pages of Piranesi by Susanna Clarke forever. Its a dream of a novel -- Anthony Doerr * Observer, Books of the Year * Clarkes fantastical parable of solitude, imagination, ambition and contentment is a spectacular piece of fiction, and the perfect reading accompaniment to a year like no other * Guardian, Best Fiction of 2020 * A startling novel of austere magical realism Clarke affirmed herself as one of Britains most singular novelists * Daily Telegraph, Best Novels of 2020 * 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 * 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 * Brilliantly peculiar It subverts expectations throughout Utterly otherworldly * Guardian * 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 paper * Her prowess as a stylist is undiminished Piranesis naively observant voice also nods to the narrators of those Enlightenment parables of flawed Reason lost amid marvels and monsters think Defoes Crusoe, Swifts Gulliver, Voltaires Candide * The Arts Desk * Close to perfect ... Full of wonders and an infectious ecstasy ... Clarke has the same skill Flann OBrien poured into The Third Policeman for making insane worlds feel as solid as our own * Sunday Times * A dazzling fable about loneliness, imagination and memory * Spectator * Beautiful and bewitchingly strange * Mail on Sunday * This is a novel of exceptional beauty ... The clich that this book is hard to put down is for once true; I can think of few recent books that keep the reader so passionately hungry to know what happens next and to understand the hints and guesses that appear in greater and greater profusion ... There is at the heart of her writing a rare capacity for the immediate: the stripped, wide-eyed descriptive simplicity of someone who, like her Piranesi, has gone through some sort of barrier and brought back news. -- Rowan Williams * New Statesman * A novel to revisit - a house you can open again, with statues touched by quiet thoughts and strange tides ... To read Piranesi is to be the labyrinth and the traveller in the labyrinth, which is poetry and prose * Observer * Piranesi astonished me. It is a miraculous and luminous feat of storytelling, at once a gripping mystery, an adventure through a brilliant new fantasy world, and a deep meditation on the human condition: feeling lost, and being found. I already want to be back in its haunting and beautiful halls! -- MADELINE MILLER A book thats deliciously weird but meticulously constructed to achieve maximum suspense. Susanna Clarke doesnt just write about magic; she channels it on to the page * Sunday Express * Enthralling and transcendent ... Clarke's writing is clear, sharp - she can cleave your heart in a few short words ... The mystery of Piranesi unwinds at a tantalizing yet lightning-like pace - it's hard not to rush ahead, even when each sentence, each revelation makes you want to linger * NPR * Plunges deep into those forbidden fortresses from which the un-mad and mortal among us are forever barred ... The only possible conclusion is: Clarke is writing from experience ... With great effort, Clarke has un-unpic
