Book Description

SLADE HOUSE by David Mitchell - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOKAn eclectic mix of the modern and the gothic gives birth to this devilish Halloween fairy tale for adults.

From the three time Booker Prize shortlisted author of Cloud Atlas and Bone Clocks!

Mind-bending, with echoes of Neil Gaiman's Coraline, but darker in tone, Slade House manages to keep an original touch. And just when you think the stories have started to become redundant, David Mitchell comes up with a background on the Grayer Twins that will give you goosebumps. Slade House's cliffhanger ending is both evil and deeply satisfying. An eclectic mix of the modern and the gothic gives birth to this devilish Halloween fairy tale for adults.

British novelist David Mitchell has published only half a dozen novels, three of which were shortlisted for England's prestigious Booker Prize. For his latest opus, he takes no credit. Slade House, he told journalists, began as a 280-tweet story that rapidly escalated into something quite larger. In the words of the author, "scenes grew, bred and sprouted new scenes until it passed the 6,000-work mark and announced itself as part one of a five-part novel." And here it is, already hailed by early readers, such as Lemony Snicket author David Handler who called it, "Sharp, fast, flat-out spooky. Slade House is such a hypnotic read that you are likely to miss your subway stop in order to keep reading.
