NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - The long-awaited new novel from the bestselling, prize-winning author of Cloud Atlas and The Bone Clocks.

New York Times Book Review Editors Choice - "Mitchells rich imaginative stews bubble with history and drama, and this time the flavor is a blend of Carnaby Street and Chateau Marmont."--The Washington Post

"A sheer pleasure to read . . . Mitchells prose is suppler and richer than ever . . . Making your way through this novel feels like riding a high-end convertible down Hollywood Boulevard."--Slate

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Washington Post - NPR - USA Today - The Guardian - The Independent - Kirkus Reviews - Mens Health - PopMatters

Utopia Avenue is the strangest British band youve never heard of. Emerging from Londons psychedelic scene in 1967, and fronted by folk singer Elf Holloway, blues bassist Dean Moss and guitar virtuoso Jasper de Zoet, Utopia Avenue embarked on a meteoric journey from the seedy clubs of Soho, a TV debut on Top of the Pops, the cusp of chart success, glory in Amsterdam, prison in Rome, and a fateful American sojourn in the Chelsea Hotel, Laurel Canyon, and San Francisco during the autumn of 68.

David Mitchells kaleidoscopic novel tells the unexpurgated story of Utopia Avenues turbulent life and times; of fames Faustian pact and stardoms wobbly ladder; of the families we choose and the ones we dont; of voices in the head, and the truths and lies they whisper; of music, madness, and idealism. Can we really change the world, or does the world change us?
