Piranesi

Piranesi by Susanna Clarke

A strange and rich tale. . . .

The writings of a man who spends most of his time alone in a labyrinth with statues, and the sea, and many birds. There are also thirteen corpses, and the Other, whom he sees from time to time, and he is filled with Wonder at the many things he experiences.

Discoveries follow, involving shoes, an albatross nest, the minotaur statues, a boat, ways of leaving messages, the discovery that journals are renumbered, and more.
