Before the Coffee Gets Cold by Toshikazu Kawaguchi is this week's Book of the Week. In a tiny basement cafe (or kissaten) in Tokyo, it's rumoured, you can travel back in time, but there are conditions: you must return before the coffee gets cold. This is a charming, approachable novel with a quirky sensibility.
