Cloud Atlas

by: David Mitchell

Publisher: Random House Books (2004)


Staff Pick by comrade: Lucas

Mitchell's versatility of narrative voice is unparalleled and put to good use in this collection of nested stories, spanning from the recent past to the distant future, as he follows a character transmigrating through history and acting as a catalyst for his historical searching.
