**Pre-order UTOPIA AVENUE, the spectacular new novel from David Mitchell.**The dazzling novel from critically-acclaimed David Mitchell.Shortlisted for the 2006 Costa Novel AwardLonglisted for the Man Booker Prize 2006January, 1982. Thirteen-year-old Jason Taylor - covert stammerer and reluctant poet - anticipates a stultifying year in his backwater English village. But he hasn't reckoned with bullies, simmering family discord, the Falklands War, a threatened gypsy invasion and those mysterious entities known as girls. Charting thirteen months in the black hole between childhood and adolescence, this is a captivating novel, wry, painful and vibrant with the stuff of life.(P) 2020 Hodder & Stoughton Ltd

Luminously beautiful. * The Times *It is the best kind of contemporary fiction. * TLS *David Mitchell is dizzyingly, dazzlingly good . . . Black Swan Green is just gorgeous. * Daily Mail *Black Swan Green's 'I love 1982' nostalgia is a glassy, pitch-perfect, mock-innocent surface through which something rotten might appear. * Sunday Telegraph *A delight to read from beginning to end. * Sunday Express *Hugely touching and enjoyable. * Observer *
