The Asian Saga is comprised of seven books by James Clavell. Read them all... The locations, which range from Japan to Turkey, are richly described by Clavell, who was a master at capturing the essence of the various locales. Chronologically (according to the storyline) the books are: "Sho-Gun" 1600 "Tai-Pan" 1841 "Gai-Jin" 1862 "King Rat" 1945 "Noble House" 1963 "Whirlwind" 1979 "Escape" 1979

La Noble Maison - James Clavell
Shogun by James Clavell: Yet another must-read. Like his contemporary James A. Michener, James Clavell got the details right in order to construct an engrossing storyline complete with colorful characters and a live story. Clavell is another all-time fave for me.
