Although the setting is quite simplistic, the charm of the gloomy old cafe is evident in Kawaguchi’s writing. Original edition was published in and this unique edition is Reprinted in 2023 with the help of original edition. Kawaguchi wanted to impart the importance for all of us to face reality hence the heart-wrenching rule that no matter what happens or how one tries to change the past, it will not alter the present.

Although the foundation of the book is based on a script written by Kawaguchi, it doesn’t detract from the gentle and reflective story-telling of the book — asking the reader to consider the fundamental question: what would you change if you could go back in time? Though the occasional dispassionate tone and the repetitiveness in the text did bother me slightly, overall I did enjoy the read and look forward to reading the next installment in this series. The goods do not need to be in their original packaging however in a sellable condition, and at your own cost and risk.

Also after the first story the newness of the premise starts to wear off (despite some arbitrary rule changes all of the sudden) and things like the weirdly specific descriptions of people, focussed solely on the colour of their clothes, started to catch my eye.

If I didn’t have stacks of other Japanese authors yet to read i would go for it but it doesn’t sound like it deserves to bump them out of my list.

Before the Coffee Gets Cold has become an international bestseller and has been adapted for the screen in Japan. As Kawaguchi is a playwright, the writing is clumsy and awkward at times despite the brilliance and romanticism of its pivotal scenes. The story revolves around a man who begins to lose his memories and embarks on a journey to reconcile with his past before it fades away completely.

Perhaps if the stories had varied a little more, or the rules weren’t quite as stringent allowing for more trepidation in the experiences, I would have felt more satisfied.
