The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell

In 1799, there was a secluded man-made island in the Nagasaki harbour called Dejima, the only trading port that connected Japan to the rest of the world. And that’s the setting of ‘The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet’ by David Mitchell, the Paperback Book Club’s book of choice for July. This tale weaves together poetic prose, the gorgeous imagery of 19th century Japan, multiple plot threads as well as varied characters in one tome.
