This chapter takes a look at David Mitchell, his writing and his works, showing that Mitchell's writing outlines human existence both transterritorially and as determined by locally specific conditions. It closely studies Ghostwritten and Cloud Atlas, which categorically decentre individual human experience, and finally looks at Mitchell's representation of globalisation.
