Finally finished The Hare with Amber Eyes, only took 14 months - even by my standards of stopping and starting, that's a long time. I liked Iggie and Elizabeth best (the writer's great-uncle and grandmother), and the image of Anna - the loyal family servant - slipping the netsuke into her apron to keep them safe in late 1930s' Vienna is just gorgeous. Loved his frequent shifts - within a paragraph - from past to present tense to make then seem now. I had a tear in my eye on last page, in spite of my disjointed reading. A fine book indeed.
