Before your memory fades : a novel / Toshikazu Kawaguchi ; translated from Japanese by Geoffrey Trousselot.

From the author of Before the Coffee Gets Cold and Tales from the Café comes another story of four new customers, each of whom is hoping to take advantage of Café Funiculi Funicula's time-traveling offer. Along with some familiar faces from Kawaguchi's previous novels, readers will also be introduced to a daughter, a comedian, a sister and a lover, each with something they wish they had said differently.
