First edition, 2nd printing. By the author of The Hare with Amber Eyes: “The Camondos lived just a few doors away from Edmund de Waal’s forebears. Like de Waal’s family, they were part of belle epoque high society. They were also targets of anti-Semitism.Count Moise de Camondo created a spectacular house filled with art for his son to inherit. Over a century later, de Waal explores the lavish rooms and detailed archives and, in a haunting series of letters addressed to Camondo, he tells us what happened next”
