Susanna Clarke


Anyone who has read ‘Jonathan Strange and Dr Norrell’ will know Susanna Clarke creates otherworldly mystery and subversion like no other.
In ‘Piranesi’ she has sculpted a labyrinthine tale where dangerous shadows fall within an Escher-like maze.
Piranesi is alone in this world of never ending halls and the treasures they contain. His only friend is ‘The Other’, and his days are occupied by cataloguing the contents of the seemingly infinite house in which he lives. When cryptic messages appear scratched on pavements Piranesi’s world is threatened, strange and dangerous secrets wait to be uncovered. Piranesi is not alone.
