Read full description of the books:

Voltato l’angolo di una via di Londra, proprio dove occhieggiano le vetrine di un popolare pub tipicamente inglese, lungo il muro di mattoni che costeggia un vicolo strettissimo, al momento giusto, troverete l’ingresso di Slade House. Un perfetto sconosciuto vi accoglierà chiamandovi per nome e v’inviterà a entrare. Nonostante una sinistra fascinazione, la vostra prima reazione sarà la fuga, ma presto vi accorgerete che allontanarsi è impossibile. Ogni nove anni, l’ultimo sabato di ottobre, gli abitanti della casa (una sinistra coppia di gemelli) estendono il loro particolare invito a una persona speciale, sola o semplicemente diversa: un adolescente precoce, un poliziotto fresco di divorzio, un timido studente universitario. A ciascuno di loro manca qualcosa – un padre, un amore, la popolarità - e la casa che non c’è sembra pronta a soddisfare ogni singolo bisogno. Ma che cosa succede, dentro Slade House? Per chi ha varcato la soglia, scoprirlo è questione di un attimo. Ed è già troppo tardi.

Raccontato nell’arco di tempo compreso tra il 1979 e la notte di Halloween del 2015, in puro stile Mitchell, I custodi di Slade House è un’avvincente storia gotica nella quale l’autore ci porta in una realtà parallela abitata dalle molte anime che popolano i suoi romanzi.

Read information about the author

Ebook I Custodi di Slade House read Online! David Mitchell was born in Southport, Merseyside, in England, raised in Malvern, Worcestershire, and educated at the University of Kent, studying for a degree in English and American Literature followed by an M.A. in Comparative Literature. He lived for a year in Sicily, then moved to Hiroshima, Japan, where he taught English to technical students for eight years, before returning to England. After another stint in Japan, he currently lives in Ireland with his wife Keiko and their two children. In an essay for Random House, Mitchell wrote: "I knew I wanted to be a writer since I was a kid, but until I came to Japan to live in 1994 I was too easily distracted to do much about it. I would probably have become a writer wherever I lived, but would I have become the same writer if I'd spent the last 6 years in London, or Cape Town, or Moose Jaw, on an oil rig or in the circus? This is my answer to myself." Mitchell's first novel, Ghostwritten (1999), moves around the globe, from Okinawa to Mongolia to pre-Millennial New York City, as nine narrators tell stories that interlock and intersect. The novel won the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize (for best work of British literature written by an author under 35) and was shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award. His two subsequent novels, number9dream (2001) and Cloud Atlas (2004), were both shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. In 2003, he was selected as one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists. In 2007, Mitchell was listed among Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in The World. Mitchell's American editor at Random House is novelist David Ebershoff.
