Toshikazu Kawaguchi

Before Your Memory Fades

€13,95
The third novel in the international bestselling Before the Coffee Gets Cold series, following four new customers in a cafe where customers can travel back in time

On the hillside of Mount Hakodate in northern Japan, Cafe Donna Donna is fabled for its dazzling views of Hakodate port. But thats not all. Like the charming Tokyo cafe Funiculi Funicula, Cafe Donna Donna offers its customers the extraordinary experience of travelling through time.
From the author of Before the Coffee Gets Cold and Tales from the Cafe comes another story of four new customers, each of whom is hoping to take advantage of the cafes time-travelling offer.

Among some familiar faces from Toshikazu Kawaguchis previous novels, readers will also be introduced to:

A daughter who begrudges her deceased parents for leaving her orphaned.
A comedian who aches for his beloved and their shared dreams.
A younger sister whose grief has become all-consuming.
A young man who realizes his love for his childhood friend too late.

Translated from Japanese by Geoffrey Trousselot and featuring signature heart-warming characters and wistful storytelling, in Before Your Memory Fades  Kawaguchi once again invites the reader to ask themselves: what would you change if you could travel back in time?.
