The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell

Award-winning author David Mitchell returns at his mind-bending best with The Bone Clocks, his Booker Prize-nominated sixth novel.

The English writer’s latest offering charts the life of protagonist Holly Sykes, from teenage runaway in 1980s Essex, to an elderly woman eking out a frugal existence in a not-too-distant future where Europe has run out of oil.

While the sheer scope of The Bone Clocks may not be to everyone’s taste, it is a page-turner that sees David Mitchell firmly establishing himself as the most genre-defying fiction writer of our time.
