Just Dropping a David Mitchell Here  
This interview with David Mitchell is fairly newish. He discusses his thoughts on the film version of his novel Cloud Atlas mainly. But of most interest to me is that the manuscript for his latest novel is due in June of this year. Provided he makes his deadline, does this mean it'll be the summer of 2014 before his newest book hits the stands? I kind of hope I'm just behind the publishing times and now houses tend to put stuff out in say, half a year than a full year from getting the manuscript.

Also of note is that the book is NOT about a young girl living in Ireland. Does this mean it might be that reincarnation, single soul novel that's been kicking around? It feels a bit too close to Cloud Atlas for it to be the first novel of his come out after the movie. But I'd take anything from Mitchell. I suppose it's too much to hope that it's actually a novel that's completely consists of letters between Frobisher and Sixsmith, right? Yeah, but it's nice to dream.
