One of my favourite authors is James Clavell, I am fascinated with his Shogun series, which so dramatically highlight differences in culture and attitudes. How he was able to so vividly portray the characters is beyond me. Although I am a huge fan of his writings, the subject matter – The British Empire and their desire to bring ‘profit’, even at the cost of making others addicts is ghastly. Some things never change, the books are fiction yet some parts are based on fact and the legacy lives on……………….
