For more Frances Mayes, including a tour of her now iconic Cortona home, Bramasole, watch PBS’ Dream of Italy: Tuscan Sun Special!
More than 20 years ago, Frances Mayes - widely published poet, gourmet cook, and travel writer - introduced readers to a wondrous new world when she bought and restored an abandoned Tuscan villa called Bramasole. Under the Tuscan Sun inspired generations to embark on their own journeys - whether that be flying to a foreign country in search of themselves, savoring one of the book’s dozens of delicious seasonal recipes, or simply being transported by Mayes’ signature evocative, sensory language. Now with a new afterword from Frances Mayes, the 20th-anniversary edition of Under the Tuscan Sun revisits the book’s most popular characters.
"Irresistible...a sensuous book for a sensuous countryside." ( Minneapolis Star-Tribune)

Rather slow and disappointing
Oooh, why did I watch the movie before reading the book?! That spoiled it for me.
And why did the author herself read the book - not a good choice at all. I thought that her strong Southern drawl and very slow pace did not really fit.
All in all, the story is slow, and remains slow, despite of the explanation of their achievements and their love for Italy, which I share.
And I only realized in the end that this was an abridged version. Not sure whether the longer version would have been better though.
I found this audio book rather disappointing, due to the reasons I quoted above.
