Under the Tuscan Sun: at home in Italy by Frances Mayes; 11 editions; First published in ; Subjects: Accessible book, Description and travel, Italian. Editorial Reviews. aracer.mobi Review. In this memoir of her downloading, renovating, and living in an abandoned villa in Tuscany, Frances Mayes reveals the. Under the Tuscan Sun - Frances MayesPreface“WHAT ARE YOU GROWING HERE?” the upholsterer lugs an armchair up the walkway to the.

But it's so delicious, read it first yourself. She has, by the sweat of her brow and the strength of her vision, become a layer in the history of this place. Her bestselling memoir on her time there paints a vivid description of the town, the people and the lush surrounding countryside of rolling hills and vineyards. A poet and a gourmet cook, Mayes includes a number of chapters on food, replete with classic Italian recipes to further whet the appetite. The book looked as though it should have immortal poetry in it but I began with lists of wildflowers, lists of projects, new words, sketches of tile in Pompeii. I added planting advice, "Plant sunflowers when the moon crosses Libra," although I had no clue myself as to when that might be. I wrote about the people we met and the food we cooked. The book became a chronicle of our first four years here. Today it is stuffed with menus, postcards of paintings, a drawing of a floor plan of an abbey, Italian poems, and diagrams of the garden. Because it is thick, I still have room in it for a few more summers.

Would that be interesting?

Of course not, so why are the tedious details of doing the same in Italy any different? This book has about as much to do with Italy as it does with North Dakota. The movie is even worse if that is possible. I had some friends come to vi I need to preface this by saying that had this book been anything less than a monster success I wouldn't trash it. I had some friends come to visit me here in Spain and one of them was reading this book.

I had read it before and thought very little of it. As I am now in the middle of editing my own travel book about Spain I practically yanked this away from them to reread.

I have to say that my first impression of Under the Tuscan Sun was accurate. As I edit my book about life in Spain I am a little worried about what I feel to be a lack of structure and focus in what I have written.

After rereading this book my work seems like a textbook example of structure. She just seems to comment randomly about her rather privileged life in Italy.

This book should serve as how not to write. It's truly ghastly writing at every step without a hint of insight to be found anywhere. This thing is like The Da Vinci Code of travel memoirs, or whatever the hell you want to call it. She is not as clumsy a writer as Dan Brown; I refer more to the immense popularity of this book.

I suppose that this is how the publishing industry works.

It keeps the soul of the book- so I'd actually recommend that instead. What a detailed interesting novel about Italy and the very visual story of the family moving there and the renovation of their home. A sunny, mouth-watering memoir and a perfect read for damp grey Vancouver days.

Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes | aracer.mobi: Books

Well-written, nice to read as fantasy-travel escapism, but there's not much story here. It's more like a journal, as a personal reviewer said. Like g gigglespisano Sep 14, I sooo loved this great read and highly recommend it. Like Superv Jul 24, I read the book after I'd seen the movie, and actually for once, thought the movie did a better job.

Sigue al autor

This book is best read as a travel journal than a novel, with a lot of recipes for the reader to follow. Like ehbooklover Apr 10, I really wanted to like this book.

The descriptions of the people, scenery, and food of Italy were enough to keep me reading the book but overall I found the author pretentious and condescending. WorldCat Library. October 9, Edited by ImportBot.
