New Susanna Clarke novel

Interesting news for people who like to read: Susanna Clarke, author of Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, is about to finally release another novel. It's called Piranesi and it comes out in September 2020; no cover image is available yet.

Publisher's description: "“Piranesi has always lived in the House. It has hundreds if not thousands of rooms and corridors, imprisoning an ocean. A watery labyrinth. Once in a while he sees his friend, The Other, who needs Piranesi for his scientific research into A Great and Secret Knowledge. Piranesi records his findings in his journal. Then messages begin to appear; all is not what it seems. A terrible truth unravels as evidence emerges of another person and perhaps even another world outside the House’s walls.”

More here, but not much more.
