Nominated five times for the Man Booker Prize, David Mitchell here takes us back to the world he has woven in books like The Bone Clocks and Cloud Atlas—and a particularly strange and frightening corner of that world it is, too. Down the road from a British pub, along the brick wall of a narrow alley, if the conditions are exactly right, you'll find the entrance to Slade House. A stranger will greet you by name and invite you inside. At first, you won't want to leave. Later, you'll find that you can't.
"It has all the intelligence and linguistic dazzle one expects from a David Mitchell novel, but it will also creep the pants off you."—Adam Johnson
