By David Mitchell
Why this book?
I’ve long been a fan of David Mitchell, so I’ll happily pick up whatever he writes. He’s one of those authors that tends to string his books together, like a little wink and a nod to his loyal readers, and there’s that wink and nod here, but you don’t have to be a reader of his to enjoy this one. Utopia Avenue is about a 60s era British band that never was. It’s fiction, but written so deftly that I seriously hopped on Spotify to make sure my parents didn’t educate me about this band. This is one that you want to keep going long after the climax.
