Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since childhood, Paolo Tullio has returned each year to his hometown of Gallinaro, to the labyrinthine nest of his relations and to the passionate people of his valley. North of Naples, South of Rome describes a hysterically chaotic wine competition, samples the Italian cantina, instructs on marketplace haggling, and investigates the charms and scams of Naples. It looks with disbelief at a tortuous bureaucracy, observes the role of the church in daily life, and explains how to win a local election and how to roast a pig. With fascinating detours on local buildings, history, folklore, and fashion, the reader tours a carousel of picnics, feasts, and fireworks, led by the delightful pen and ink drawings of Tullio's wife, renowned watercolorist Susan Morley.

This warmhearted tour of a charming, intimate world is as enticing and original as A Year in Provence and Under the Tuscan Sun.

About the Author

Paolo Tullio was born in the Comino Valley, but educated in England. He lives in Ireland with his wife, Susan Morley, and their children.
