Publisher Description

**Pre-order UTOPIA AVENUE, the spectacular new novel from David Mitchell.**


The Sunday Times Number One Bestseller, from the author of CLOUD ATLAS and THE BONE CLOCKS.

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2010

Be 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.

Electric Nag ,

Why give one star to a book just because it's expensive?

Surely that is not the issue when rating a book you dunderhead. And the dullard who gave it one star with an arrogant 'enough said' is clearly a moron without the ability to enlarge on his brief, witty and incisive opinion.
Its a wonderful, beautiful book, that I didn't want to end. Read it - you'll love it unless you are a dunderhead, dullard or smug moron.

Book of a thousand memories

A wonderful and gripping story. The book ebbs and flows with natural rhythm, complete characters and masterful literacy.

Epic!

Detailed historical story of Japan on the arrival of the Europeans. A subtle love story, drama, mystery. Beautiful.
