Piranesi by Susanna Clarke

Hey all,

Has anyone read the book Piranesi by Susanna Clarke (author of Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell)? I just picked it up and have only read the first dozen or so pages, but it seems really intriguing. So far all I know is that it is set in a possibly infinitely large mansion, with only two characters. So far the main character is telling how he's been exploring the mansion. It's a real mystery where this is going, but I'm hooked.

I did not realize she has written other books, but I am intrigued; I really liked Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrel.

She also has a book of short stories set in the JS&MN universe, The Ladies of Grace Adieu and Other Stories.
I got it from the library once but didn't get hooked right away, so I got distracted by other things and soon it was due back to the library. Looking at her bibliography she has additional short stories that are unrelated to JS&MN (hmm, one set in the Neil Gaiman Sandman universe) but no other full novels aside from JS&MN and this new one.
