David Mitchell

Novelist

David Mitchell was born to art-loving parents. Although Mitchell was not raised in a particularly bohemian household, his parent’s artistic careers taught him that you could make a living exploiting your artistic talent. An early love of reading encouraged Mitchell to put pen to paper and suffering from a stammer, writing also offered him a new medium through which to express himself. He read English and American literature at the University of Kent, and although received funding for his MA, he had no money from which to live off so began working in Waterstones. Today it is Mitchell’s books, including Black Swan Green, Time; Cloud Atlas and Ghostwritten, that you will find gracing the shop’s shelves.
