Piranesi lives in the House. Perhaps he always has. In his notebooks, day after day, he makes a clear and careful record of its wonders: the labyrinth of halls, the thousands upon thousands of statues, the tides that thunder up staircases, the clouds that move in slow procession through the upper halls. On Tuesdays and Fridays Piranesi sees his friend, the Other. At other times he brings tributes of food and waterlilies to the Dead. But mostly, he is alone. Messages begin to appear, scratched out in chalk on the pavements. There is someone new in the House. But who are they and what do they want? Are they a friend or do they bring destruction and madness as the Other claims? Lost texts must be found; secrets must be uncovered. The world that Piranesi thought he knew is becoming strange and dangerous. The Beauty of the House is immeasurable ; its Kindness infinite.… (mer)

    hubies: Piranesi is not scary, but in both books there is this mystifying, unpeopled world of impossible (and perhaps infinite) house-like space. Also: cryptic diary entries, unstable mind, short film as a plot device.

I couldn't put this one down (I read it in one day).
Heavily reminiscent of:
The Library of Babel, The Starless Sea, The Slow Regard of Silent Things, & The Ten Thousand Doors of January while also managing to be original.
Just wonderful. ( )

Fantastical with a grounding in reality. A real treat to read with a tone unlike most books. ( )
  terrencejerome | Mar 31, 2021 |
It had a very Gormenghast feel, or perhaps something by one of the New Weird authors like Kelly Link, with a strange, labyrinthine setting and ingenuous protagonist. There was a bit of clunky infodump towards the end, but on the whole I enjoyed it very much. ( )
  SChant | Mar 30, 2021 |
Piranesi's world—or rather World—is the House, a series of endless classical halls and courtyards filled with statuary, its upper stories lost in clouds and its lower floors full of a trapped ocean. The only other living beings in the House are birds and a man at first known only as the Other—but then Piranesi discovers traces of the presence of someone else in the house and begins to ask questions about the nature of the House and who he himself is.

I enjoyed Piranesi very much—it's part a character study (of a self without a self), part adventure story, even a little part an academic satire—and Susanna Clarke is very good at conjuring up the half-drowned world of the House. Yet found myself wanting something just a bit—more? different? from Piranesi. Clarke didn't necessarily have to bring in the Gothic grotesqueries of a Gormenghast, but I never felt astounded or off-kilter while reading in the way I wanted. Don't get me wrong—Piranesi is very, very good. But for me, not quite magic. ( )

Not my usual genre but a compelling book. So creative. Piranesi is such a nice person and doesn’t realize all the details of the world he is in. The book walks us through these realizations as they happen and makes for a great plot. ( )

Here it is worth reflecting on the subject of Clarke's overt homage. The historical Piranesi, an 18th-century engraver, is celebrated for his intricate and oppressive visions of imaginary prisons and his veduta ideate, precise renderings of classical edifices set amid fantastic vistas. Goethe, it is said, was so taken with these that he found the real Rome greatly disappointing. Clarke fuses these themes, seducing us with imaginative grandeur only to sweep that vision away, revealing the monstrosities to which we can not only succumb but wholly surrender ourselves.

The result is a remarkable feat, not just of craft but of reinvention. Far from seeming burdened by her legacy, the Clarke we encounter here might be an unusually gifted newcomer unacquainted with her namesake's work. If there is a strand of continuity in this elegant and singular novel, it is in its central pre-occupation with the nature of fantasy itself. It remains a potent force, but one that can leave us - like Goethe among the ruins - forever disappointed by what is real.

"I am the great scholar, the magician, the adept, who is doing the experiment. Of course I need subjects to do it on".

The Magician's Nephew, C. S. Lewis
"People call me a philosopher or a scientist or an anthropologist. I am none of those things. I am an anamnesiologist. I study what has been forgotten. I divine what has disappeared utterly. I work with absences, with silences, with curious gaps between things. I am more of a magician than anything else."

Laurence Arne-Sayles, interview in The Secret Garden, May 1976
