About the Edition

A stunning, innovative Matyroshka doll of six nested narratives, which start in the 19th century and vault us into a dystopian future. While treating the reader to an impressive display of divergent writing styles and genres, Mr. Mitchell stays true to his theme throughout. Along the way, we"re reminded of Stevenson, Raymond Chandler, and Margaret Atwood, among others. This awe-inspiring achievement combines a highly diverting ultra-modern construction with eternal human truths.
