Book Description

In this sequel to her New York Times bestsellers Under the Tuscan Sun and Bella Tuscany, the celebrated bard of Tuscany (New York Times) lyrically chronicles her continuing, two decades-long love affair with Tuscanys people, art, cuisine, and lifestyle.
Frances Mayes offers her readers a deeply personal memoir of her present-day life in Tuscany, encompassing both the changes she has experienced since Under the Tuscan Sun and Bella Tuscany appeared, and sensuous, evocative reflections on the timeless beauty and vivid pleasures of Italian life. Among the themes Mayes explores are how her experience of Tuscany dramatically expanded when she renovated and became a part-time resident of a 13th century house with a stone roofin the mountains above Cortona, how life in the mountains introduced her to a wilder side of Tuscany--and with it a lively engagement with Tuscanys mountain people. Throughout, she reveals the concrete joys of life in her adopted hill town, with particular attention tolife in the piazza, the art of Luca Signorelli (Renaissance painter from Cortona), and the pastoral pleasures of feasting from her garden.Moving always toward a deeper engagement, Mayes writes of Tuscan icons thathave become for her storehouses of memory, of crucible moments from which bigger ideas emerged, andof the writing life she has enjoyed in the room where Under the Tuscan Sun began.
With more on the pleasures of life at Bramasole, the delights and challenges of living in Italy day-to-day and favorite recipes, Every Day in Tuscany is a passionate and inviting account of the richness and complexity of Italian life.

    Life in Italy, Tuscany, no less, seems like an idyllic, simple life, visiting with friends in the piazza over a nice hot cup of coffee that is handed to you for free because you are that gosh darn likeable for an American. In fact, Mayes is so incredible that all the town knows her and loves her and fauns all over her... according to her.

    This is the life that Frances Mayes lives over there in Europe, Italy, Tuscany for Pete sake, with her husband Ed. Well, they kind of live there except when they're living in their other house in North Carolina. But Mayes speaks Italian so she's almost a native to the area, as opposed to those foppish American tourists who come to Italy visiting loudly.

    So, yah, Frances Mayes is so full of herself and her quaint life there in Italy where she can afford to live half the year, live like the locals in that understated rich way that she just fits in so nicely. All those details are available to you, if you care.

    Have you read Eat, Pray Love? This is similar. The author is so taken with herself and her life and her ideas and her everything that it gets to be b-o-r-i-n-g. If you liked Eat, Pray, Love you will like this book as well. If you like reading from an author who is just sure you will want to know all the picayune details of her way more scintillating life than your boring old American one, you will like this book. And if you especially like to read about how way better the Europeans are than those droll Americans, this is a definite 'must read.'

    So, I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 because I liked the aioli recipe and the vanilla sauce recipe.
