Description

A CLASSIC FROM THE "NEW YORK TIMES" BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF "UNDER MAGNOLIA"
"A Year in the World" is vintage Frances Mayes--a celebration of the allure of travel, of serendipitous pleasures found in unlikely locales, of memory woven into the present, and of a joyous sense of quest. With her beloved Tuscany as a home base, Mayes travels to Spain, Portugal, France, the British Isles, and to the Mediterranean world of Turkey, Greece, the South of Italy, and North Africa. Weaving together personal perceptions and informed commentary on art, architecture, history, landscape, and social and culinary traditions, Mayes brings the immediacy of life in her temporary homes to readers. An illuminating and passionate book that will be savored by all who loved" Under the Tuscan Sun," "A Year in the World" is travel writing at its peak.
