Publisher Description

Unravel Italy’s idiosyncrasies and experience its essence in a book that topples communication barriers and provides an idiom-inspired road map to life in the Bel Paese.
 
Drawn from her column in The Florentine, Linda Falcone’s If They Are Roses is the sequel to the best-selling Italians Dance and I’m a Wallflower. It clues into a country in which affection is abundant, jobs are scarce, art is more available than oxygen and soccer and style are one in the same. It explores a language worth deciphering: being a ‘doctor’ has nothing to do with medicine, ‘My mother!’ is a substitute for ‘My God!’ and al dente pasta proves a moral dilemma.
 
Discover the heart of everyday Italy, where conversation is as rich and energizing as coffee and wit is the daily bread of the common man.
