Wabi-Sabi (Paperback) (Francesc Miralles)
about this item
Living apart from his girlfriend Gabriela, from whom he seems to have grown gradually distant, university lecturer Samuel is shaken from his humdrum existence when he receives an anonymous postcard from Japan depicting a porcelain figurine of a cat and the words “wabi-sabi”, followed by the unexpected visit at work of a girl trying to identify the language of a strange, haunting song.
This sets Samuel on a quest that will take him to the Land of the Rising Sun, not only to discover the meaning of the cryptic message, which may hold the key to some of his unanswered questions, but also to find enlightenment, a new equilibrium and a reappreciation of the small joys of life. Written with Miralles's trademark quirkiness, wit and lightness of touch, Wabi-Sabi will delight the many fans of his internationally best-selling novel Love in Small Letters.
