**WINNER OF THE COSTA BIOGRAPHY AWARD** Edmund de Waal uncovers the history of a family through a turbulent century through 264 objects. 264 wood and ivory carvings, none of them bigger than a matchbox: Edmund de Waal was entranced when he first encountered the collection in his great uncle Iggie's Tokyo apartment. When he later inherited the 'netsuke', they unlocked a story far larger and more dramatic than he could ever have imagined. From a burgeoning empire in Odessa to fin de siecle Paris, from occupied Vienna to Tokyo, Edmund de Waal traces the netsuke's journey through generations of his remarkable family against the backdrop of a tumultuous century. 'You have in your hands a masterpiece' Sunday Times 'The most brilliant book I've read for years... A rich tale of the pleasure and pains of what it is to be human' Daily Telegraph **ONE OF THE GUARDIAN'S 100 BEST BOOKS OF THE 21st CENTURY*

  1. Högsta möjliga läsvärde
    Johan Nordenfelt, 18 oktober 2021

    Mycket välskriven, lågmäld och känsligt återgiven berättelse om hur en framgångsrik familj grymt störtades in i död och fullständig förstörelse av antisemitism och den nazistiska utrotningspolitiken. Berättelsen korsar spår med A time of gifts av Patrick Leigh Fermor.

    Jag tyckte mycket om denna släktberättelse. Kunde inte släppa den ifrån mig. Både känsligt och underbar. Med andra ord ett mästerverk !

[A] wonderful book -- Dame Felicity Lott * Waitrose Weekend * In a decade where memoir became the dominant genre, this immensely evocative family history told via the journey through the generations of some Japanese miniature figures stood out -- Andrew Holgate * Sunday Times, *Books of the Decade* * An evocative narrative of art, inheritance and loss * Homes & Antiques * From a hard and vast archival mass...Mr de Waal has fashioned, stroke by minuscule stroke, a book as fresh with detail as if it had been written from life, and as full of beauty and whimsy as a netsuke from the hands of a master carver. * The Economist * This remarkable book... a meditation on touch, exile, space and the responsibility of inheritance... like the netsuke themselves, this book is impossible to put down. you have in your hands a masterpiece. -- Frances Wilson * The Sunday Times *
