Delightful story

Before the Coffee Gets Cold - Toshikazu Kawaguchi, Geoffrey Trousselot In a little back alley in downtown Tokyo lies a small cafe and for the price of a cup of hot coffee you the customer can be transported back (or forward) in time. You may select this occasion to see a loved one, or revisit an event of your choosing. Told in the free flowing style reminiscent of such esteemed Japanese authors as Murakami and Ishiguro, Before the coffee get cold, is a delightful little story that will make you smile. Many thanks to the good people of netgalley for a gratis copy in exchange for an honest review and that is what I have written.
