Book Review #4

30 May

Desiring Italy is a collection of excerpts by women writers over the last century or so.  It is introduced as a collection of stories by women writers who loved Italy, whether they called it home or not.

Some of the pieces are beautiful.  Some are a little dry, or atleast I found them so.  The only thing I really didn’t like about this book was that several of the pieces are not about Italy so much as simply set in Italy.

Still, the writing was wonderful and there were several pieces by well known writers, balanced by a lot of work by people at least I had never heard of…

Verdict: B
