One of Italy’s loveliest cities. A grass-roots newspaper whose pressroom lies on the ‘artists’ side’ of the Arno. People meeting deadlines or just plain meeting in crowded caf?s where the conversation is as rich and warm as the coffee.After the success of Italians Dance and I’m a Wallflower, Linda Falcone is back with more humor from everyday Italy. Drawn from her column in The Florentine, Tuscany’s English-language newspaper, If They are Roses describes a country where affection is abundant, jobs are scarce and wit is the daily bread of the common man.’Italy has never tempted me with temporary infatuation: it is the love of my life and the bane of my existence. An incorrigible mix of “leave me alone” and “don’t ever leave me”‘ writes Falcone. An exhilarating celebration of Italians and their way with words, If They are Roses is for those who love language and those who love, period.
