I'm only 70 pages into The Hare with Amber Eyes and already I can tell that it's going to be one of my best reads of the year.
Sorry ... must get back to 1870s Paris which has been brought so vividly alive that I feel like an habituée of those opulent salons.
Normal life will be resumed in a day or two.

So glad to hear this! I gave the book to my husband for his recent birthday, but I want to read it, too.

I'm sure you'll love it, Karen. I'm totally in awe of de Waal's skills as writer/historian/storyteller/art-historian ... and now I'm going to have to head off to the V&A to check out his ceramics.
