Piranesi by Susanna Clarke

Bloomsbury, 2020

A beautiful book; a complete book; a book which lacks nothing. The main character, whose name the book bears as its title, has such love for his world, and finds himself to be at home in it and loved by it; it is very wonderful; ah, but strange things come to pass! I myself can add nothing to this review from The Guardian; see also a piece, also in The Guardian, about the author and how Piranesi came to be;—and see also the book's namesake, Giovanni Battista Piranesi.
