Editorial Reviews

"This is not one of those travelogues written by a clueless foreign dilletante; Kempton knows the culture she describes."

– The National Review

"Wabi Sabi isn’t a one-pass read, it’s a wise little friend that you can turn to time after time. I would recommend it for anyone who’s trying to slow their lives down a little and see the bigger picture."

– The Book Family Rogerson
