The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet, A Novel

The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet, A Novel - David Mitchell LOVE books that make me drag out my 2-volume shorter Oxford dictionary! Amazing insight into a brief period of time in Japan in late 18th century, with Dutch influence. Liked the viewpoint of Dutch clerk interspersed with Japanese midwife. Rare laugh-out-loud moments just added enough lightheartedness to lyrical and visual epic, if I can be so bold to call it that.
