My father and I just started Piranesi by Susanna Clarke, her first novel since her masterwork Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell.
In a House that
is the World, where an Ocean's tides thunder and crash or gradually flow
through and across statue-lined Halls and staircases, mystery – and a
possible Great and Secret Knowledge – abounds. Truly this already
promises to be a standout even among unique books, comparable to Diana Wynne Jones herself.
