Another David Mitchell
A quick note: I just re-read Black Swan Green by David Mitchell, and it really is great. It's a completely straight-forward story, not experimental like Cloud Atlas, but it's very true and genuine and just terrific. It's about a thirteen-year-old English boy named Jason Taylor. It takes place in the 1982, during the Falkland Islands War, and covers the whole year from January to December in twelve linked short stories. I recommend it highly.
