Description
(Winner of the 2010 Costa (formerly Whitbread) Book Award for Biography and the Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Prize) A master ceramicist and a curator at London's Victoria & Albert Museum, Edmund de Waal understands the hidden lives of objects. So when he inherited 264 Japanese netsuke, he wondered who had held these tiny carved treasures before him, and how the collection had managed to survive even when his wealthy Russian Jewish family was destroyed in World War II. Part family memoir, part cultural history, part globetrotting detective story, de Waal's genre-defying book is at last illustrated here with family photos and documents, color reproductions of art, and of course, dozens of beautiful netsuke.

"A family memoir written with a grace and modesty that almost belie the sweep of its contents: Proust, Rilke, Japanese art, the rue de Monceau, Vienna during the Second World War. The most enchanting history lesson imaginable."The New Yorker
