Cover Reveal: 'Piranesi' By Susanna Clarke

The moment the book was listed on some online books stores I preordered it right away. Yes! That is how excited I am of Piranesi by Susanna Clarke. I am not sure if this is really a direct follow-up to Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell but I can assume this is set in the same ethereal world of magic!

You see I'm in love with Susanna Clarke and it started after having read her first novel. At first I was daunted by its sheer size, but then I started reading the words (and looking at the eerie in-page arts) I got hooked and entertained by it right away. So gothic... so bizarrely beautiful! So I am really watching out for new books from this author! That's how hungry I am of her works, unfortunately there are not many becaase the releases are far in between...

Check out the official cover of Piranesi by Susanna Clarke.

Piranesi by Susanna Clarke


From the New York Times bestselling author of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, an intoxicating, hypnotic new novel set in a dreamlike alternative reality.

Piranesi's house is no ordinary building: its rooms are infinite, its corridors endless, its walls are lined with thousands upon thousands of statues, each one different from all the others. Within the labyrinth of halls an ocean is imprisoned; waves thunder up staircases, rooms are flooded in an instant. But Piranesi is not afraid; he understands the tides as he understands the pattern of the labyrinth itself. He lives to explore the house.

There is one other person in the house-a man called The Other, who visits Piranesi twice a week and asks for help with research into A Great and Secret Knowledge. But as Piranesi explores, evidence emerges of another person, and a terrible truth begins to unravel, revealing a world beyond the one Piranesi has always known.

For readers of Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane and fans of Madeline Miller's Circe, Piranesi introduces an astonishing new world, an infinite labyrinth, full of startling images and surreal beauty, haunted by the tides and the clouds.

Piranesi by Susanna Clarke will be released on September 15, 2020.
