Before the coffee gets cold Tales from the cafe #ALIASNGGBookClub Week 1 question

by | Mar 5, 2024 | ALIA, ALIA SNGG Book Club, ALIA Students and New Graduates News

A book cover of a cafe that lets you travel in time. Three clocks set at different times are in the room.

If you could go back, who would you want to meet?

At the start of Before the coffee gets cold Tales from the Cafe by Toshikazu Kawaguchi, you find a dedication page with this question.

Cafe Funiculi Funicula provides the opportunity to travel to the past. But travelling has a set of rules to adhere to that can’t be ignored. You must drink your coffee before it gets cold in a designated seat. If the coffee gets cold when you are in the past, you will become a ghost.

Would you visit the Cafe to go back in time to see a loved one or friend, even though your time is limited to the temperature of the coffee?
