Description

‘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 irresistable, maybe unforgettable. Clavell creates a world so enveloping you forget who and where you are’ – New York Times
