The Hare with Amber Eyes by Edmund de Waal--Audiobook Excerpt
Listen to this audiobook excerpt from Edmund de Waal's book The Hare with Amber Eyes. Edmund de Waal is a world-famous ceramicist. Having spent thirty years making beautiful pots—which are then sold, collected, and handed on—he has a particular sense of the secret lives of objects. When he inherited a collection of 264 tiny Japanese wood and ivory carvings, called netsuke, he wanted to know who had touched and held them, and how the collection had managed to survive.
