David Mitchell's top 6 reads

David Mitchell's novels include The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, Cloud Atlas, Black Swan Green, and most recently, Slade House. One title from his "life in books," as shared at the Telegraph:
Le Grand Meaulnes (The Lost Domain), by Henri Alain-Fournier

I read this at 18 or 19 and can’t quite capture why it’s so beautiful, but it is. If something’s French and has been in print for over 50 years, then read it.
