“Can a novel made of words...explore the wordless mysteries of music, and music's impact on people and the world?” asks David Mitchell of his new novel Utopia Avenue. The story follows the tumultuous journey of a fictional British band during the rock ‘n’ roll music scene of the 1960s. Join Mitchell, award-winning author of The Bone Clocks and Cloud Atlas, for a conversation with Madeline Miller (Song of Achilles and Circe) about the power of music and books to help us imagine a utopian world.
