Synopsis:

Now in paperback, the #1 San Francisco Chronicle bestseller that is an enchanting and lyrical look at the life, the traditions, and the cuisine of Tuscany, in the spirit of Peter Mayle's A Year in Provence.Frances Mayes entered a wondrous new world when she began restoring an abandoned villa in the spectacular Tuscan countryside. There were unexpected treasures at every turn: faded frescos beneath the whitewash in her dining room, a vineyard under wildly overgrown brambles in the garden, and, in the nearby hill towns, vibrant markets and delightful people. In Under the Tuscan Sun, she brings the lyrical voice of a poet, the eye of a seasoned traveler, and the discerning palate of a cook and food writer to invite readers to explore the pleasures of Italian life and to feast at her table.


Review:

"[A] romance for people who'd rather read M.F.K. Fisher than Barbara Cartland....Casual and conversational, her chapters are filled with craftsmen and cooks, with exploratory jaunts into the countryside--but what they all boil down to is an intense celebration of what she calls 'the voluptuousness of Italian life'....Despite a few shadows, Ms. Mayes's mood is usually sunny, warmed by her generosity."

Alida Becker, New York Times Book Review, 11/17/1996

Review:

"Somehow, this is a narrative at once joyful and full of common sense, a balance that few other writers have struck so perfectly. It's...honest and true, and vividly captures a sense of place."

Brian St. Pierre, San Francisco Chronicle, 11/10/1996
