The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet (Paperback)

David Mitchell


Shortlisted for the Galaxy National Book Awards and longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, David Mitchell's The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet is set on a man-made island in the bay of Nagasaki, a place that for 200 years was the only gateway between Japan and the West. A young Dutch clerk arrives to make his fortune and ends up falling for a Japanese midwife. As the two cultures collide, scheming traders, spies, interpreters, servants and concubines all combine to devastating effect. Packed with historical references, this ambitious novel is a tale of integrity and corruption, and passion and power.
