**THE NUMBER ONE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER**

**WINNER OF THE 2010 COSTA BIOGRAPHY AWARD**

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.

    I loved this book. I especially enjoyed the historical detail and the background events to this family’s life. I fell in love with Emmy especially. Lots of lessons for us today. How easily inhumanity spreads. The narrator did a great job too.
