Like dew I was born

“Like dew I was born
Like dew I vanish
..and all that I have ever done
Is but a dream
Within a dream”
—James Clavell, Shogun

Clavell’s novel set in c.1600 Japan has been described as a virtual history of that country. Either way, it is an extraordinary story, beautifully and compellingly told.
