Four Seasons in Rome: On Twins, Insomnia, and the Biggest Funeral in the History of the World (Hardcover)
This author wrote the Pulitzer Prize winning WWII novel All the Light We Cannot See while on a fellowship in Rome that granted him a writing studio and a small stipend. Doerr takes his wife and newborn twins to Italy, immersing the family in language, culture, and art. They are intent on capturing all the opportunities available. Part memoir, part armchair travel, part food writing, this small volume is most satisfying.— marla
From the award-winning author of "The Shell Collector" and "About Grace" comes an evocative memoir of the timeless beauty of Rome and the day-to-day wonderment of living, writing, and raising twin boys in a foreign city.
