David Mitchell book tour at the Castle Hotel for Taunton Literary Festival 2014

This November, Taunton Literary Festival 2014 rolls into town, for two weeks of autor talks, book signings and events, spread over two weeks, in and around Somerset’s county town. In its third year, Taunton Literary Festival has scored big with David Mitchell, best known as the author of Cloud Atlas, stopping off to promote his latest novel, The Bone Clocks.

David Mitchell will be promoting his new novel, The Bone Clocks with a talk and book signing at The Castle Hotel, Taunton, on Tuesday 11 November at 11:30am. Tickets are £10.

Cloud Atlas is the genre-spanning bestseller that really put David Mitchell on the map, and was recently made into a film starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and Ben Wishaw. Mitchell fans are excited about his latest novel, The Bone Clocks, which appears to share some of the ambitions of Cloud Atlas. With his new book, Mitchell is back to crossing genre boundaries, in a novel that is described as a metaphysical thriller, although it begins innocently enough, on a hot, summer afternoon in 1984.

If you haven’t read any David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas is a good place to start or just jump in with The Bone Clocks, as I’ve found it to be gripping so far (100 pages in). Whether you’ve read him or not, he’s one of the greatest writers of his generation, so definitely worth coming to see at Taunton Literary Festival 2014. He’s even worth a morning off work – one of those rare authors, who can write big literary ideas, gorgeous prose and a good yarn.

David Mitchell will be promoting his new novel, The Bone Clocks with a talk and book signing at The Castle Hotel, Taunton, on Tuesday 11 November at 11:30am. Tickets are £10.

For tickets, head to the Taunton Literary Festival website to order online or Tel. 01823 337742 email: brendonbooks@gmail.com

This is my hot tip for Taunton Literary Festival 2014. I’ve got my ticket – make sure you get yours and I’ll see you there.

  1. And surprise, surprise the other one, not the author, will be putting in an appearance at the Yeovil Literary Festival early in November. Check with care.
