The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet - David Mitchell

Here's an example of how books are marketed these days. I've admired David Mitchell for some time, particularly for his brilliant Cloud Atlas.
Thanks to my friend Anthony Levings for the tip.

I like the Captain Pugwash-style animation.

I'm looking forward to Mitchell's new book. When Cloud Atlas won the "Richard and Judy Book Club Reader's Choice" award a few years ago, it restored my faith in the reading public.

Yes, the reading public can still surprise you occasionally. Celeb memoirs seem to be on the decline, for instance....

I hadn't seen this - thanks. It's rather good. I like the way it doesn't give much away.
