    you have the wrong David Mitchell listed under "meet the author."  There are two well-known Brits called David Mitchell: the author as you have listed and a comedian.  This book is a memoir written by the comedian.

    Part two

    Rosalimd strolled through, gazing sadly at the ruined buildings. As she walked down the block, she couldnt help but ait and watch a particular builsing belonging to an old scientist. He was slightly mad, but obbsessed with cats and Rosey was constantly by him, looking at his research. She almost felt sorry looking at the rubble that was once an inproved house. Suddenly, the old scientist started pushing her foward, toward the rubble of his lab. He pulled away the huge rocks easily, and pulled out a dusty syringe, containing a brown liquid. The earthquake and all this must have made him mad. He shoved the syringe into her, and she collasped to the ground. He slipped on a flower patterened sheet over her, and carried her over the fences, and into the forest. Rosey groaned, and threw the sheet off. She thought she was in bed but that changed when she noticed the tree and a spiderweb complete with a spider on her face. She threw them off effortlessly, and stood up. She felt more powerful then before. She felt an itch on her head. She reached up, but she found a furry thing. It was an ear. She screamed loudly, triggering a chain of singing and cawing birds. She looked around, then she saw a tail seeping out from her night gown.
