by Susanna Clark

Susanna Clarke celebrates wonder, innocence, and the precarious art of creating meaning in life through this lean, labyrinthine story about Piranesi, a being who lives within an endless array of flooded rooms and hallways ornamented by towering preternatural statues. Piranesi’s weekly meetings with the only other human in his existence—aptly named The Other—leads him to explore this dwelling, keeping detailed notes in his neatly ordered journals. But when Piranesi notices distressing gaps in his own memory through journal entries, he doesn’t remember writing, he begins to piece together his past.
