Frances Mayes - 'See You in the Piazza: New Places to Discover in Italy'

  • Quail Ridge Books 4201 Lassiter Mill Road Raleigh, NC, 27609 United States (map)

Bestselling and beloved author Frances Mayes discovers the hidden pleasures of Italy in a sumptuous travel narrative that crisscrosses the country, with inventive new recipes celebrating Italian cuisine. The Roman Forum, the Leaning Tower, the Piazza San Marco: these are the sights synonymous with Italy. But such landmarks only scratch the surface of this magical country's offerings. In See You in the Piazza, Frances Mayes introduces us to the Italy only the locals know, as she and her husband, Ed, eat and drink their way through thirteen regions--from Friuli to Sicily. Along the way, she seeks out the cultural and historic gems not found in traditional guidebooks.

Frances Mayes is the author of seven books about Tuscany, including the now-classic Under the Tuscan Sun--which was a New York Times bestseller for more than two and a half years. It was followed by Bella Tuscany and two illustrated books, In Tuscany and Bringing Tuscany Home. She is also the author of two novels, six books of poetry, and The Discovery of Poetry. Her books have been translated into fifty-four languages.
