Lead Review

  • Book: The Teahouse Fire
  • Location: Japan
  • Author: Ellis Avery



The tea ceremony becomes a tiny stage on which grand passions are enacted… Avery captures all this with the emotional poise befitting her characters, and great sensual pleasure. Her novel is a rather beautiful thing: all the more so for emulating the values of another world (the Financial Times, 2008)
