The Thousand Autumns Of Jacob De Zoet


Okay, I am going to admit, I have not read any David Mitchell. However, I do intend on reading him. Check out his list of influences: Muriel Spark, Haruki Murakami, Paul Auster, Don DeLillo, Russell Hoban, Italo Calvino, Peter Carey, George Orwell, Vladimir Nabokov, Jorge Luis Borges, Richard Wright, Mikhail Bulgakov, and Ursula K. Le Guin among many. And it's funny, that's kind of how I imagined his writing, based on critical observation and praise.

David Mitchell's two previous novels; number9dream (2001) and Cloud Atlas (2004) were both shortlisted for the booker and he really is a darling of indie booksellers and lit critics.

So join me in throwing caution to the wind with Thousand Autumns, it's not tried and true, yet. But isn't that what it's all about? The not-knowing and the discovery?
