The Hare with Amber Eyes

By Edmund De Waal

Chatto and Windus

ISBN: 978-0701184179


Edmund De Waal was enraptured when he first saw the 260-odd netsuke - carved wood and ivory toggles - in his great uncle's Tokyo flat. When he later inherited them, he was introduced to the story of Charles Ephrussi, a businessman with a passion for collecting, who launched the netsuke on a journey that took in some of the most tumultuous events of the 20th century before the tiny figurines finally made their way back home to Japan.
