To read:
The Hare with the Amber Eyes by Edmund De Waal

“Objects have always been . . . stolen, retrieved and lost. It is how you tell their stories that matters.”  This is one of my all time favourite books.

Uncovering the odyssey taken by a group of family-treasured netsuke – those intricately carved figures traditionally used to adorn Japanese kimonos, we follow the authors’ ancestors custodianship of the collection through four  generations of the Ephrussi family.  From the salons of late 19th century Paris to the grand palais of early 20th century Vienna, and through the rise of the Nazi regime in the 1930s to the grinding poverty of post second world war Japan, De Waal breathes life into these carvings and paints a picture of the past, immortalizing his personal history in this beautifully written book.
