Introducing Rose Books by Clarice Sabar
Three women talk in a quiet voice in a semi-dark room protected from the heat of the sun. Their long black dresses remind me of Sicilian women who want to live in mourning for their lost husbands for the rest of their lives.
All three are standing on top of an old wooden cradle, whispering something; They are fully aware that no one hears their words. Even if there are children in the crib, the child is very quiet, because the only sound that can be heard is the ticking sound of a clock that seems invisible, a sound that is perfectly suited to the suffocating atmosphere there.
I do not understand the words that interfere. Maybe I can lip-read seeing their faces. I roll my eyes around the half-lit room to get used to it. It smells like a house that has been unoccupied for a long time.
Odor and humidity are also combined with this condition. Despite three women dressed in the style of a hundred years ago, the atmosphere is strange and somewhat disturbing. I do not see anything in that room except the three women. Through the stretched shutters, a glimmer of sunshine reaches the floor with great effort. Dust particles can also be seen in the air with this light. I see a door at the end of the room that is slightly open and I walk towards it.
Clarisse Sabard, thirty years old, born in Nice, France, loves reading and roses. He believes he lived somewhere in New York between 1920 and 1950! Rose Letters is the first novel by this young writer, dreamer, nature lover and adventurer.
In a part of Les lettres de Rose, you can read:
I take the subway. Inside the train, I get stuck between a teenage girl reading a Tolkien book and a boy with his head on his smartphone. The girl seems to be completely immersed in reading. I want to praise him out loud;
But I restrain myself. Finally, when I get home, I can safely put on the right clothes. I set the two colors that always come to me; Pink T-shirt and gray pants.
My color goes especially well with oak hair. I have heard this from my friends many times. I start work today at ten o’clock; That means I have ten minutes left. I walk here and there. I can not stop myself. I have to look in my phone and see if Peter has sent me a text message as a sign of remorse and apology.
