A "contagiously exuberant" celebration of Italian food, culture, and history that "will be the companion of visitors for years to come" (The Washington Post Book World). In an absorbing journey down the Italian peninsula, essayist, journalist, and fiction writer Barbara Grizzuti Harrison, offers a fascinating mixture of history, politics, folklore, food, architecture, arts, and literature, studded with local anecdotes and personal reflections. From fashionable Milan to historic Rome and primitive, brooding Calabria, Harrison reveals her country of origin in all its beauty, peculiarity, and glory. Italian Days is the story of a return home; of friends, family, and faith; and of the search for the good life that propels all of us on our journeys wherever we are. "Harrison's wonderful journal will make you update your passport and dream of subletting your job, home, etc. . . . With Harrison, you never know with whom you'll be lunching, or climbing down a ruin. You just know you want to be there." —Glamour
