Read full description of the books:



Japon, 1799. Dejima, près de Nagasaki, est l’un des ports d’attache de la Compagnie néerlandaise des Indes orientales. Jacob de Zoet, un jeune clerc ambitieux qui y est envoyé pour redresser les finances troubles de la Compagnie, est vite désemparé devant la corruption ambiante et l’étrangeté des moeurs. Il croit trouver refuge auprès d’Orito, une Japonaise au visage partiellement brûlé. Mais Orito est enlevée puis emprisonnée dans le mystérieux temple Shiranui, où l’abbé Enomoto garde captives douze femmes dont il a fait ses esclaves. Uzaemon, l’interprète de Jacob, lui aussi épris d’Orito, partira à la recherche de la jeune femme avec une bande de samouraïs. Navigateur solitaire, Jacob de Zoet sera pris au coeur d’un océan houleux où les humains ne sont, en surface, que des pièces sur un jeu de go.

Read information about the author

Ebook Les Mille Automnes de Jacob de Zoet read Online! David Mitchell was born in Southport, Merseyside, in England, raised in Malvern, Worcestershire, and educated at the University of Kent, studying for a degree in English and American Literature followed by an M.A. in Comparative Literature. He lived for a year in Sicily, then moved to Hiroshima, Japan, where he taught English to technical students for eight years, before returning to England. After another stint in Japan, he currently lives in Ireland with his wife Keiko and their two children. In an essay for Random House, Mitchell wrote: "I knew I wanted to be a writer since I was a kid, but until I came to Japan to live in 1994 I was too easily distracted to do much about it. I would probably have become a writer wherever I lived, but would I have become the same writer if I'd spent the last 6 years in London, or Cape Town, or Moose Jaw, on an oil rig or in the circus? This is my answer to myself." Mitchell's first novel, Ghostwritten (1999), moves around the globe, from Okinawa to Mongolia to pre-Millennial New York City, as nine narrators tell stories that interlock and intersect. The novel won the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize (for best work of British literature written by an author under 35) and was shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award. His two subsequent novels, number9dream (2001) and Cloud Atlas (2004), were both shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. In 2003, he was selected as one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists. In 2007, Mitchell was listed among Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in The World. Mitchell's American editor at Random House is novelist David Ebershoff.
