    'Not just dazzling, amusing, or clever but heartbreaking and passionate, too. I've never read anything quite like it'
    MICHAEL CHABON

    'One of those how-the-holy-hell-did-he-do-it? modern classics that no doubt it - and should be - read by any student of contemporary literature'
    DAVE EGGERS

    Souls cross ages like clouds cross skies . . .

    A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific Ocean in 1850.
    A disinherited composer conning his way into the home of a dying genius in interwar Belgium.
    A high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan's California.
    A vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors.
    The testament of a genetically modified 'dinery server' on death-row.
    And Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation.

    The narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other's echoes along the corridor of history - echoes that change destinies in ways great and small.

    In a globe-encircling narrative reaching from the nineteenth century to a post-apocalyptic future, Cloud Atlas erases the boundaries of time, genre and language to offer an enthralling vision of humanity's will to power, and where it will lead us.
