Under the Tuscan Sun: At Home in Italy by Frances Mayes
Told in prose so poetic, you can practically taste the luscious, regional recipes, Mayes includes in this biography, without ever entering a kitchen. A renowned poet, travel writer, and chef, Mayes tells the story of her life in Tuscany as an expat, and new home owner. If you enjoyed the movie of the same name, that’s great, but don’t pass up the book because you think you already know the story. Under the Tuscan Sun weaves a completely different tale in print, then it did on the screen.
