Author Info
James Clavell
Born Charles Edmund DuMaresq de Clavelle, the multi-talented James Clavell wrote many successful screenplays (including THE GREAT ESCAPE and TO SIR WITH LOVE), and was a director and producer, but he was best known for his monumental best-selling novels set in Asia. Among them were KING RAT (1962), based on his own experiences as a prisoner of war in Singapore's Changi prison; SHOGUN (1975); and NOBLE HOUSE (1981). Clavell died of cancer at his home in Switzerland, just short of his 70th birthday.
"Clavell has a gift...It may be something that cannot be taught or earned. He breathes narrative. It's almost impossible not to continue to read `Shogun' once having opened it. The imagination is possessed by Blackthorne, Toranaga and medieval Japan. Clavell creates a world: people, customs, settings, needs and desires all become so enveloping that you forget who and where you are."
