Bought this one from the author at the Miami Book Fair 2012. Having been to Venice, I was anxious to read it and did so within 24 hours. Barry is a great comedic writer. I found myself laughing out loud on serveral occasions. The book also shows that the author knows how to take life in stride, an absolute necessity when one is outside the U.S. for more than a weekend. And a great way to approach life everyday, no matter where you are. Appreciate the experience, whether the experience is good or bad and life will be mostly good. A great read! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0983614105, Paperback)

My secret plan to move to Venice was ready. It was time to see if my wife would buy into the idea of leaving our home to live for an entire year in a foreign country. 
And thus the journey begins - Barry and Debbie Frangipane, a middle-class couple tired of the rat race leaves it all for the lure of Venice. But can they make it in a foreign land? Read about the hilarious twists and turns their lives take during their year in the city of water, as they show us a Venice we never knew existed. The Venice Experiment is about fulfilling dreams on a journey that any of us could make - but would we?

Lured by Venice's colorful history, Frangipane was determined to experience its labyrinth of walkways, canals, and bridges as more than just a tourist. He and his wife began a year-long cultural immersion. From the exasperating bureaucracy to high tides endangering their ground-floor apartment, these expatriates get far more than they bargained for.… (more)
