NOW A MAJOR TV SERIES 'Clavell never puts a foot wrong . . . Get it, read it, you'll enjoy it mightily' Daily Mirror This is James Clavell's tour-de-force; an epic saga of one Pilot-Major John Blackthorne, and his integration into the struggles and strife of feudal Japan. Both entertaining and incisive, SHOGUN is a stunningly dramatic re-creation of a very different world. Starting with his shipwreck on this most alien of shores, the novel charts Blackthorne's rise from the status of reviled foreigner up to the hights of trusted advisor and eventually, Samurai. All as civil war looms over the fragile country. 'I can't remember when a novel has seized my mind like this one. It's irresistible, maybe unforgettable. Clavell creates a world so enveloping you forget who and where you are' - New York Times

  1. Bästa sträckläsningen
    Patrick Joyce, 10 april 2024

    Den nya TV-serien är utomordentlig men James Clavells bok är ännu bättre. Omöjlig att lägga ifrån sig när man väl börjat läsa den. Det kan vara den bästa roman som skrivits om Japan för oss västerlänningar.

Övrig information

James Clavell, the son of a Royal Navy family, was educated in Portsmouth before, as a young artillery officer, he was captured by the Japanese at the Fall of Singapore. It was on this experience that his bestselling novel KING RAT was based. He maintained this oriental interest in his other great works: TAI-PAN, SHOGUN, NOBLE HOUSE and GAI JIN.
