Author David Mitchell on his work

Host Ed Goldberg speaks with David Mitchell, whose most recent book is "The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet," a historical novel of corruption, betrayal and love in Japan in 1799, when the island nation was almost entirely cut off from the West except for a tiny, quarantined Dutch outpost.

David Mitchell's 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.
