Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Praise for Beppe Severgnini La Bella Figura "Don't read this bookunless you have the courage to let Dottore Severgnini carve up your well-worn stereotypes about Italy. La Bella Figuraproves that twenty-first-century Italians are more complicated than we thought. Sort of like Europeans. And Beppe loves them all." Howard Tomb, author ofWicked Italian "The book on perplexing Italians . . . Severgnini's most systematic probe of the Italian psyche yet . . . A keen observer of human nature, [he watches] his compatriots with amused insight . . . Laugh-out-loud funny." International Herald Tribune Ciao, America! "A Bella Laugh . . . This wonderfully funny and perceptive book . . . now finds its way to the country that inspired it. What a pity it took so long to get here, but what a joy that it is here at last. Ciao, America!is fun from first page to last, pure and simple." The Washington Post "It's not easy to walk the thin line between Tocqueville'sDemocracy in AmericaandDave Barry's Only Travel Guide You'll Ever Need, but this memoir manages to do so admirably." Booklist "Severgnini is a master . . .Ciao, America!is a sardonic tale of cultural bewilderment, an incisive peek into the mundane obsession of our American existence that makes the commonplace seem not only insane but extremely funny." Publishers Weekly "A delightful read, full of wonderful anecdotes that capture the eye-opening absurdity of life in these United States." Chicago Tribune "It would be difficult not to like this delightful book." Library Journal
