    The Hare With Amber Eyes by Edmund de Waal

    The Hare With Amber Eyes: A Hidden Inheritance is a family memoir by Edmund de Waal, the renown British pottery artist.

    This book is the story of a collection of netsuke (miniature wood carvings from Japan) owned by de Waal's family. It tells how the collection has been passed from generation to generation; from Paris to Vienna and, in a twist of fate, back to Japan. Throughout, de Waal explores the intrinsic meaning of objects themselves.

    Highly recommended.
