A Single Rose
About this deal
Rose is a 40-year old Parisian botanist who has never met or even communicated with her father, Haru Ueno, an art dealer who lives in Kyoto. For those who share a similar fascination with French and/or Japanese culture, A Single Rose is essential reading - and for those looking to rediscover or reassess the joy of life, it makes an equally compelling case. Japan is so entirely different from France that these observations sometimes have a sense of wonder, sometimes of frustration.
At first, I couldn’t warm to Rose but as the book progresses she opens up more and becomes more down to earth from the stuck-up woman she came across at the start.Ce roman est un bingo pour touriste esthète : les jardins japonais, la caligraphie, l'ikebana, la cérémonie du thé et le matcha, les temples de Kyoto dont les très connus temple d'Argent, Koto-in Ryoan-ji, Nanzen-ji, le temple des mousses, etc. However, with trends changing daily, we've now seen cases where men and guys would instead opt for a more simplistic approach by presenting a single red rose to their ladies.
We see these layers build up one by one, like at dinner one night, when Rose watches the chef place speared fish on skewers onto the grill. Little Graduation • Prickly Pair • In Dreams • Bismuth Casual • Together Forever • Growing Pains • Mr. Also in the same shot, Garnet's shoulder pads appear to be oval-shaped like her current regeneration instead of cube-shaped.One would think the father would have wanted his daughter to visit the Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts which represent the essence of his business empire or delve into the rich history and tradition of the country at the Kabuki Theater. The amusing thing is that in-between the chapters are short stories, Japanese folk law that tells you tales that have subliminal messages, these I enjoyed and they kept me reading.
