Cloud Atlas: David Mitchell

6 novellas (each in a different literary genre) =  1 novel. How's he manage that then? Finding out is one of the pleasures of the book. Others are the brilliance of the story-telling (a narrative breaks off halfway through and you're immediately hooked by the one that interrupts it) and Mitchell's skills as a pasticheur.
