Cloud Atlas author David Mitchell to release new novel in July 2020
Two-time Booker Prize-nominated novelist David Mitchell is plotting his return with a new book entitled Utopia Avenue, slated for release on July 14, 2020.
Utopia Avenue tells the story of a British band of the same name that emerged from London's psychedelic scene in 1967 and their brief, yet blazing journey through the city's music scene to the international stage.
The novel features detours to parallel dimensions and cameos from the era's biggest stars, from Brian Jones to Diana Ross, Francis Bacon to Bill Evans.
It will also include many of his famous Easter eggs that link back to past novels.
Utopia Avenue will be published by Knopf Canada.
Utopia Avenue is his first full-length novel in five years. It is preceded by his seventh novel, Slade House, which was published in 2015.
Mitchell is also the author of bestselling novel Cloud Atlas, which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 2004, and The Bone Clocks, longlisted for the Booker Prize in 2014.
