Media Review – Piranesi

May your Paths be safe, your Floors unbroken and may the House fill your eyes with Beauty.”

For October’s media review our team read Piranesi, by Susanna Clarke – the winner of the 2021 Women’s Prize for Fiction. In the book, the narrator lives in a place he calls ‘The House’ which he understands to be the whole world. The house is huge- perhaps infinite… with thousands of rooms- extending to include the ocean in the lower halls and the clouds in the upper halls.

Listen to what our team made of it at around 5’36 minutes in to our October podcast.

Piranesi by Susanna Clarke is published by Bloomsbury. Support your local independent bookshop if you can! Holly also recommends the audiobook.
