Publikace: THOUSAND AUTUMNS OF JACOB DE ZOET - MITCHELL, D.. David Mitchell reinvents himself with each book, and it's thrilling

to watch. His novels like Ghostwritten and Cloud Atlas spill over

with narrators and language, collecting storylines connected more

in spirit than in fact. In The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet,

he harnesses that plenitude into a more traditional form, a

historical novel set in Japan at the turn into the 19th century,

when the island nation was almost entirely cut off from the West

except for a tiny, quarantined Dutch outpost. Jacob is a pious but

not unappealing prig from Zeeland, whose self-driven duty to blurt

the truth in a corrupt and deceitful trading culture, along with

his headlong love for a local midwife, provides the early engine

for the story, which is confined at first to the Dutch enclave but

crosses before long to the mainland. Every page is overfull with

language, events, and characters, exuberantly saturated in the

details of the time and the place but told from a knowing and

undeniably modern perspective. It's a story that seems to contain a

thousand worlds in one. Publikace: THOUSAND AUTUMNS OF JACOB DE ZOET - MITCHELL, D.. Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet - David Mitchell. In your hands is a place like no other: a tiny, man-made island in the bay of Nagasaki, for two hundred years the sole gateway between Japan and the West. Here, in the dying days of the 18th century, a young Dutch clerk arrives to make his fortune. Instead he loses his heart. Step onto the streets of Dejima and mingle with scheming traders, spies, interpreters, servants and concubines as two cultures converge. In a tale of integrity and corruption, passion and power, the key is control - of riches and minds, and over death itself.
