Chic lit lite meets Italian travel writing. A collection of mercifully short frothy essays on Italy, that add nothing to your knowledge of local culture. Even Barbara Harrison's contribution seems somehow diminished by its lackluster companions. Intelligent women have written knowingly and passionately about Italy. Unfortunately they have not made it into this book. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 158005143X, Paperback)

Legendary for fabulous food, persistent men, and a lyrical language, Italy has inspired many great love affairs—with the country itself. From the notorious occupants and cuisine of Sicily, to the ancient marvels of Rome, to the couture of Milan, women throughout the ages have invented and reinvented adventure in this diverse and voluptuous land. In this thrilling and layered new collection, women from Barbara Grizzuti Harrison to the neo-Tuscan Frances Mayes to Mary Simetti Taylor explore and describe in loving prose individual infatuations with a land that is both complicated by and adored for a rich tradition.
