After I saw sheet sets at TJ Maxx featuring Under the Tuscan Sun, I decided: Basta! . It became a book, filled with hysterical cartoons by an incredibly talented and amazing man I met online, satirist Gianni Falcone (ww. ianfalco.

After I saw sheet sets at TJ Maxx featuring Under the Tuscan Sun, I decided: Basta! Enough is Enough! . it - also on OpenSalon) - we still have never met in person – gotta love the internet. And later, I decided to turn it into a book as well featuring The 10 Commandments to Life in Italy, a collection of true stories covering everything from the bane of the Post Office to life under the Iron Hand of La Mamma. It’s now an e-book as well – but you could call it a sort of User’s Manual to Life in Italy.

A total waste of time. Sometimes it is even offensive to both Italians and visitors to their beautiful country.

I found this slender (and often repetitive) book to be an American's complaint about all things Italian. In the epilogue the author did say nice about the Italians, perhaps at the suggestion of her publisher, but her sudden conversion seemed insincere.

Book is a light hearted romp in Italy

Not as good a read as I thought. Having lived in Italia for 8 years, I was not all together over the moon on this particular book.

True Stories of Life is amusing while pointing out the other side of a trip to Italy. Most novels highlight the beauty of the country and the graciousness of the Italian people. But there are customs and formalities that must be learned in order to make the trip pleasant and worthwhile. This is the purpose of the book, and while these things are funny, they must be pointed out to show that "all that glitters is not gold".

Excellent

Francesca describes Italy as it is, and while she makes fun of its foibles, you can tell that she still loves the country and it's people. There's a lot of laughs here.
Can't stop laughing , i too have Lived in italy for 20 plus years , can tell you every word is true! No exaggerations! Italy is a crazy wonderful nutty glorious frustrating country and Francesca Maggi has masterfully put her finger on every crazy idiocincracy with great insight, wit and sensibility, I have been giggling into the wee hours !
