David Mitchell

From the archive:


David Mitchell reads from his novel The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet (Random House Trade paperback 2011).  We talk about “word nerdery” and future novels circling one’s head like planes in a holding pattern.  We also talk about Dejima, Cloud Atlas and how music means everything, or close to it.
