Pedro  I'm looking for a book but can not remember the title or author. I do remember the title being; "(the name/type of a plant,) in the window sill or by the window" not sure. The genre is fiction. The plot delt with a man that worked at a shoe repair shop I believe and or rented a small apartment/living space above the shop and wrote letters to someone. I know this is extremely vague but unfortunately its all I can remember.

When did you read it or when was it published?
Author female or male?
Literary fiction?
Was it an epistolary novel, meaning were the letters in the book?

I thought of that too, but searched for shoe / repair in the book and didn't find it.
