Mayes is as generous a cook as she is a writer, flavoring her story with tasty descriptions of local gustatory delights--many of which are included in a small recipe book. She also serves as narrator, and the beguiling simplicity of her voice makes listening as enjoyable as spending an afternoon with a well-traveled favorite aunt. (Running time: 9 hours, 6 cassettes) --George Laney
"Tuscany may have found its own bard in Frances Mayes."
--New York Times
"This beautifully written memoir about taking chances, living in Italy, loving a house, and always, the pleasures of food, would make a perfect gift for a loved one. But it's so delicious, read it first yourself."
"So enchanting that an armchair traveler will find it hard to resist jumping out of the chair and following in her footsteps."
"Graceful . . . at once joyful and full of common sense . . . as intimate as a lover's whisper, honest and true."
--San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
"Irresistible . . . a sensuous book for a sensuous countryside."

Other reviewers have not liked the author's voice--and I didn't either when I first listened to the book. But now I can't imagine hearing the book read by anyone else. In my library I consider this a classic.
