Summary: From David Mitchell, the Booker Prize nominee, award-winning writer and one of the featured authors in Granta's ''Best of Young British Novelists 2003'' issue, comes his highly anticipated third novel, a work of mind-bending imagination and scope.

A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan's California; a vanity publisher
fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified ''dinery server'' on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation -- the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other's echoes down the corridor of history, and their destinies are changed in ways great and small.

In his captivating third novel, David Mitchell erases the boundaries of language, genre and time to offer a meditation on humanity' s dangerous will to power, and where it may lead us.
