About Sean Triner

Sean Triner occasionally lives in rural New South Wales in Australia. He is co-owner of fundraising businesses Pareto Fundraising and Pareto Phone, helping raise funds for great charities. He loves a yarn. With some encouragement from a writers group and an understanding girlfriend he managed to get some time away from writing charity appeals and fundraising articles and write a bit of fiction instead.

I found this to be a very elegantly written tale. It works as a fable for me as it tells an egaging story and also invites us to think about the relationship between violence and beauty, and the collision between old words and new, greed and sacrifice. I recommend it.

What a beautiful fable, a sad very realistic view of our greedy changing world. I will recommend to all my friends.

This is a wonderful, meaningful and easy to read book. It's simple language conveys a deep story that is a fable for our times. It is beautifully illustrated, too. It's sad to think that there have been many Harukis whose simple and sustainable existence have been sacrificed for our modern, convenient and consumerist lifestyle. I would love a set of Haruki's knives!

This modern fable is beautifully illustrated and is a fascinating read. It really makes you think about the beauty of simplicity, and what can happen when both greedy capitalism and monolithic communism combine to destroy an ancient way of life.
