A manual devoted to a satisfying autumnal ritual or as the author describes it ‘an illustrated reflection on the evanescence of life’. Released shortly after Koren’s handbooks on meditation and bathing, this deceptively modest volume quietly peruses similar ideas, recommending for instance that a soothing soak in an outdoor bath can steady the mind to allow you to contemplate your raking strategy (‘Anything can be used as a tub’).
