Not my favorite Wilder, but interesting glimpse into the world of expats in Rome. Fantastical plot with some insight into what it's like to be an expat (and what a small world it becomes once you're in a foreign country). ( )

ok.....for starters, this book had no quotation marks......not sure i have ever read something without them, but it was an adjustment. Expatriates from all over convening on Rome take a young New England scholar into their high social circles giving him a year he'll remember for some time! Also a bit of a thinking book....lots of dialogue about Catholicism and royalty and the reincarnation of sorts of Roman Gods, all of this making for a bit of an effort for me beyond my desire for a pleasurable read. Wilder won 3 different Pulitzer Prizes, 1 for a novel and 2 for plays, so as always, i started at the beginning. This was his first, and i'll not hold that against him at this point. It was a quick read, but nothing that really grabbed me in any way. One hopes that experience for Wilder led to more stimulating work.....I'll keep you posted! ( )

Much more enjoyable than other reviews led me to expect but the end was a bit baffling. Perhaps I'm missing some context? ( )
