I sat at the kitchen table between my Italian boyfriend, Francesco, and his mom near the sink, trapped in an awkward place where her insults had to pass through me to get to him. All of the blood in her body had rushed into her face as she listed off the many reasons American women make terrible mothers. She lifted a saucepan in the air like she was about to bludgeon me with it, then turned and chucked it into the soapy water, sending a tidal wave of suds crashing onto the counter. When she turned her back to violently scrub the dishes, I snuck out the sliding glass door.
That’s a passage from the book “Naked In Italy,” a memoir by M.E. Evans detailing her not-so-fairytale adventure of living in Florence. Sure there were the rolling hills of the Val d'Orcia, cheap wine, and good looking Italian men. But as M.E. explains in the book and this podcast, no matter how hard you try, you can’t escape life.
Our conversation with her is candid. She doesn’t hold back, and her humor that is on display in the book comes out as quick wit on this podcast.
If you love to laugh, if your cherish honesty, and if you like the roller coaster of life with Tuscany as the backdrop, then you are going want to buy Naked In Italy today! You won’t want to put it down.
