"Mitchell is, clearly, a genius." --The New York Times Book Review (review of Cloud Atlas)

"Mitchell really is his generation's Pynchon." --Kirkus Reviews (review of Cloud Atlas)

"Brilliant…Mitchell creates an evocative yet authentically adolescent voice, an achievement  even more impressive than the ventriloquism of his earlier books." --The New York Times Book Review (review of Black Swan Green)
