The thousand autumns of Jacob De Zoet : a novel by David Mitchell( Book )
68 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 3,186 libraries worldwide
1799, Dejima in Nagasaki Harbor. Jacob de Zoet, a devout and resourceful young clerk, has a chance encounter with Orito Aibagawa, the disfigured daughter of a samurai doctor and midwife to the city's powerful magistrate. The borders between propriety, profit, and pleasure blur until Jacob finds his vision clouded, one rash promise made and then fatefully broken--the consequences of which will extend beyond Jacob's worst imaginings
Black swan green : a novel by David Mitchell( Book )
81 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 3,101 libraries worldwide
"Black Swan Green tracks a single year in what is, for thirteen-year-old Jason Taylor, the sleepiest village in muddiest Worcestershire in a dying Cold War England, 1982. But the thirteen chapters, each a short story in its own right, create an exquisitely observed world that is anything but sleepy. A world of Kissingeresque realpolitik enacted in boys' games on a frozen lake; of "nightcreeping" through the summer backyards of strangers; of the tabloid-fueled thrills of the Falklands War and its human toll; of the cruel, luscious Dawn Madden and her power-hungry boyfriend, Ross Wilcox; of a certain Madame Eva van Outryve de Crommelynck, an elderly bohemian emigre who is both more and less than she appears; of Jason's search to replace his dead grandfather's irreplaceable smashed watch before the crime is discovered; of first cigarettes, first kisses, first Duran Duran LPs, and first deaths; of Margaret Thatcher's recession; of Gypsies camping in the woods and the hysteria they inspire; and, even closer to home, of a slow-motion divorce in four seasons. Pointed, funny, profound, left-field, elegiac, and painted with the stuff of life, Black Swan Green is David Mitchell's subtlest and most effective achievement to date."--Publisher's website
The bone clocks : a novel by David Mitchell( Book )
41 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 3,068 libraries worldwide
Following a scalding row with her mother, fifteen-year-old Holly Sykes slams the door on her old life. But Holly is no typical teenage runaway: a sensitive child once contacted by voices she knew only as "the radio people," Holly is a lightning rod for psychic phenomena. Now, as she wanders deeper into the English countryside, visions and coincidences reorder her reality until they assume the aura of a nightmare brought to life. For Holly has caught the attention of a cabal of dangerous mystics -- and their enemies. But her lost weekend is merely the prelude to a shocking disappearance that leaves her family irrevocably scarred. This unsolved mystery will echo through every decade of Holly's life, affecting all the people Holly loves -- even the ones who are not yet born. A Cambridge scholarship boy grooming himself for wealth and influence, a conflicted father who feels alive only while reporting from occupied Iraq, a middle-aged writer mourning his exile from the bestseller list -- all have a part to play in this surreal, invisible war on the margins of our world. From the medieval Swiss Alps to the nineteenth-century Australian bush, from a hotel in Shanghai to a Manhattan townhouse in the near future, their stories come together in moments of everyday grace and extraordinary wonder
The reason I jump : the inner voice of a thirteen-year-old boy with autism by Naoki Higashida( Book )
18 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 2,312 libraries worldwide
Written by a thirteen-year-old boy with autism, this memoir demonstrates how an autistic mind thinks, feels, perceives, and responds in ways few of us can imagine. Using an alphabet grid to painstakingly construct words, sentences, and thoughts that he is unable to speak out loud, Naoki answers even the most delicate questions that people want to know. Parents and family members who never thought they could get inside the head of their autistic loved one at last have a way to break through to the curious, subtle, and complex life within. Naoki shares his unique point of view on not only autism but life itself. His insights, into the mystery of words, the wonders of laughter, and the elusiveness of memory, are so startling, so strange, and so powerful that you will never look at the world the same way again. In his introduction, novelist David Mitchell writes that Naoki's words allowed him to feel, for the first time, as if his own autistic child was explaining what was happening in his mind

Every nine years, the house's residents--an odd brother and sister--extend a unique invitation to someone who's different or lonely: a precocious teenager, a divorced policeman, a shy college student. But what really goes on inside Slade House? For those who find out, it's already too late" --

La razón por la que salto by Naoki Higashida( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 88 libraries worldwide
Cuando, con trece años, Naoki Higashida empezó a comunicarse a través de una parrilla de ideogramas diseñada por su madre, estaba haciendo historia. Nunca antes un niño aquejado de un grado de autismo tan severo había conseguido transmitir, comunicarse, expresarse. Si bien las consideradas condiciones del espectro autista no son nunca exactamente iguales en dos personas, sí que comparten un rasgo: en mayor o menor medida, afectan su capacidad de comunicación e interrelación con los demás. Naoki consigue traducir su experiencia a un lenguaje comprensible para cualquier lector a través de preguntas como: ¿por qué los autistas habláis tan alto y tan raro?; ¿por qué os gusta poner vuestros coches de juguete en fila y ordenar todos los bloques de los juegos de construcción?; ¿por qué saltas? Sus respuestas son optimistas y transmiten alegría de vivir, ternura y, sobre todo, nos presentan a alguien admirable de quien hay mucho que aprender
