The Hare with the Amber Eyes by Edmund de Waal

the hare with the amber eyesI was really pleased when a friend lent me The Hare with the Amber Eyes because I’d been looking forward to reading it.

However, it was really hard going and I’ll admit that I skipped a whole chunk of the Vienna part of the story, then skim read the rest.

The story of the netsuke (small Japanese cord toggles) is fascinating, but there is a lot of facts in the book and little colour to hold onto.

Maybe I’ll try it again one day.
