What is your favorite book about life in Italy as an expat?



Hi Stef, If you mean a book written by an Ex - Pat about life in Italy  Tim Parks has written a number which come to mind, such as "a season with Verona"...."an Italian Education".....and more recently  "Italian Ways: On and Off the Rails from Milan to Palermo".  However if you mean as an Ex- pat reading any book about Italian life I would say the Neopolitan series by Elena Ferrante

My favorite book about life is Atlas Shrugged by Rand Ayn. The book is very popular, many read it and left positive reviews. Now I want to start reading a new book, but the university is in the way. I recently found where you can compare and contrast examples, I use https://gradesfixer.com/essay-types/compare-and-contrast-essays/ for this. This made me feel a little better. I have more free time, I will soon start reading something new. I would like someone to recommend something from books.

"Under the Tuscan Sun" by Frances Mayes: This memoir chronicles the author's experience of purchasing and restoring an abandoned villa in the Tuscan countryside. It's a delightful read for anyone dreaming about life in rural Italy.

There are loads but a favourite is travel writer Eric Newby. He wrote at least two based in Italy. A book of escaping as a prisoner of war in Italy and another book of his time having a house in northern Tuscany during the 60s and 70s. Good for anyone who has a place in the Barga, Aulla, Bagni area. Captures a time when north Tuscany was still undiscovered.

I'm no stranger to the rigors of academic life. The late nights spent poring over textbooks, the stress of looming deadlines, and the overwhelming workload are all too familiar.
