Expect the unexpected with an author like David Mitchell. He continues his genre-bending, gloriously weird ways with this novel about a young woman with psychic powers caught in an epic battle between supernatural forces. Witty dialogue, ambitious leaps between realism and the fantastic, and truly stunning storytelling. Not everyone will appreciate the head-spinning shifts in tone and character, but if you’re looking for something mesmerizingly different, this is an all-you-can-eat buffet of literary pleasures.
