This time the book club goes back to the beginnings. The very first book we read was The Hare with Amber Eyes by Edmund de Waal telling the story of the Ephrussi family centered in Odessa, Vienna and Paris through the movements of their collection of Japanese netsuke miniature sculptures. Recently Edmund de Waal has loaned part of this collection to Protected content in Vienna. So this time I invite you to join the book club for a museum visit and see this amazing collection in real. Even if you have not read the book I recommend this exhibition, you can follow a great part of European history through the involuntary travels of the Ephrussis.
