Tales from the Cafe: Before the Coffee Gets Cold (Paperback)

£8.99
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

In a small back alley in Tokyo, there is a cafe which has been serving carefully brewed coffee for more than one hundred years. But this coffee shop offers its customers a unique experience: the chance to travel back in time . . .



From the author of Before the Coffee Gets Cold comes Tales from the Cafe, a story of four new customers each of whom is hoping to take advantage of Cafe Funiculi Funicula's time-travelling offer.



Among some faces that will be familiar to readers of Toshikazu Kawaguchi's previous novel, we will be introduced to:



The man who goes back to see his best friend who died 22 years ago

The son who was unable to attend his own mother's funeral

The man who travelled to see the girl who he could not marry

The old detective who never gave his wife that gift . . .



This beautiful, simple tale tells the story of people who must face up to their past, in order to move on with their lives. Kawaguchi once again invites the reader to ask themselves: what would you change if you could travel back in time?
