Under the Tuscan Sun
At Home in ItalyBook - 1996
20th Anniversary Edition with a New Afterword
Twenty 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 villa called Bramasole in the spectacular Tuscan countryside. Under the Tuscan 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's signature evocative, sensory language. Now, with a new afterword from the Bard of Tuscany herself, the 20th anniversary edition of Under the Tuscan Sun brings us up-to-date with the book's most beloved characters.

From our 2015 #80DayRead Summer Reading Club traveler Nicole: Wow! What a detailed interesting novel about Italy and the very visual story of the family moving there and the renovation of their home.

I, like a lot of other people, were so impressed with life in Tuscany, it inspired us to travel to Corono, Italy. Funny, well written (Mayes is an English prof) you lived her adventure to restore an Italian "villa" in your middle ages. Recommended by Sharon.
