Frances Mayes offers a deeply personal memoir of her present-day life in Tuscany, encompassing both the changes she has experienced since Under the Tuscan Sun and Bella Tuscany appeared, and sensuous, evocative, reflections on the timeless beauty and vivid pleasures of Italian life. Mayes explores how her experience of Tuscany dramatically expanded when she restored a second property and became a part-time resident of a thirteenth-century house near Cortona. Throughout, she reveals the concrete joys of life in her adopted hill town, with particular attention to life in the piazza, the art of the Renaissance painter Luca Signorelli, and the pastoral pleasures of feasting from her garden. Mayes writes of Tuscan icons that have become for her storehouses of memory, of crucible moments from which bigger ideas emerged, and of the writing life she has enjoyed in the room where Under the Tuscan Sun began. With more on the pleasures of life at Bramasole, the delights and challenges of living in Italy day to day, and a selection of favorite recipes, Every Day in Tuscany is a passionate and inviting account of the richness and complexity of Italian life.

Listening to Frances Mayes talk about her life in Tuscany makes me want to relax. I want to enjoy the food, the wine, and the conversation. I want the Italian sense of time rather than my American rush through life. This book is a grand reminder of what is important and what is possible.
