The Beautiful Orderliness of the House is what gives us Life.

Piranesi has always lived in the House; or, for as long as he can remember.

Day after day, Piranesi records in his notebooks with precision and carefulness the House’s endless halls, their great and strange statues, the ebb and flow of the tides within its walls. He speaks to the birds; and brings tributes of food and waterlilies to the House’s Dead. Once in a while, he sees his friend the Other. But mostly, he is alone.

Then messages begin to appear, scratched out in chalk and spelled out in pebbles. A new person has come to the House, and there is something they are trying to tell Piranesi.

But another story is unfolding, within the pages of Piranesi’s own journal. A story written in his own hand, that he cannot remember writing; a story of a group of strangers, in an unfamiliar world.

The Beauty of the House is immeasurable; its Kindness infinite.

Review

PRAISE FOR JONATHAN STRANGE AND MR NORRELLUnquestionably the finest English novel of the fantastic written in the last seventy years. It’s funny, moving, scary, otherworldly, practical and magical … Closing Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell after 800 pages my only regret was that it wasn’t twice the length

This is, in both the precise and the colloquial sense, a fabulous book … a highly original and compelling work (SUNDAY TIMES)

An elegant and witty historical fantasy which deserves to be judged on its own (considerable) merit (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

Full of spells, bad weather, statues that talk, haunted ballrooms and sinister gentlemen with thistledown hair … be enchanted! (ELLE)

The language of the book is such a pleasure you’d probably want to go and read it anyway

Best novel I’ve ever read
