Description

The Sunday Times Number One Bestseller, from the author of CLOUD ATLAS and THE BONE CLOCKS. Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2010'Brilliant' - The Times'A masterpiece' - ScotsmanBe transported to 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. 'Confirms Mitchell as one of the more fascinating and fearless writers alive' - New York Times Book Review
