FILE - In this Oct. 14, 2012 photo, British author David Mitchell, from the upcoming film "Cloud Atlas," poses for a portrait in Beverly Hills, Calif. The latest book project for Mitchell, the "Cloud Atlas" novelist, was released in England this summer to excellent reviews and strong sales, reaching the top 10 on Amazon.com. Mitchell and his wife, Keiko Yoshida, were the translators of "The Reason I Jump," coming out in the U.S. next month, a memoir about autism and a deeply personal book for Mitchell, the father of an autistic boy.
