David Mitchell - The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet (2nd Hand Paperback)
Brilliant novel from the bestselling author of Cloud Atlas
Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2010.
Imagine a nation banishing the outside world for two centuries, crushing all vestiges of Christianity, forbidding its subjects to leave its shores on pain of death, and harbouring a deep mistrust of European ideas.
The narrow window onto this nation-fortress is a walled, artificial island attached to the mainland port and manned by a handful of traders. Locked as the land-gate may be, however, it cannot prevent the meeting of minds - or hearts.
The nation was Japan, the port was Nagasaki and the island was Dejima, to where David Mitchell's panoramic novel transports us in the year 1799.
For one young Dutch clerk, Jacob de Zoet, a strange adventure of duplicity, love, guilt, faith and murder is about to begin - and all the while, unbeknownst to the men confined on Dejima, the axis of global power is turning . . .
