Staff Reviews


In 2012 I read three older wonderful, quirky non-fiction books that shared a common element: despite not being memoir, each author’s experience becomes intertwined with the story they’re telling. In addition to The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and Young Men and Fire, I thoroughly enjoyed The Hare with Amber Eyes by Edmund de Waal. It is a family history framed by a collection of netsuke (miniature carvings from Japan) which was assembled in belle epoch Paris by an ancestor of the author, and passed down to him through turns that illuminate the momentous events of the intervening years.
