An up-close view of John Paul II's funeral and the complications of being a man with little knowledge of the Italian language, as he frustratedly asks for "grapefruit sauce" when he wanted "tomato sauce." This is complicated as well by the new challenges of fatherhood, of twins no less.

If you love Italy and, more importantly, if you have ever experienced raising small children and the intensity it brings, you will very much appreciate and enjoy this book. Anthony Doerr, won a scholarship to work on his upcoming novel in Rome, complete with stipend and living expenses. Although ideal in every sense of the word, this opportunity followed several months after the birth of his twin sons, Henry and Owen. The family decided to go through with the adventure, however, and moved to Rome for a year, not knowing the language, culture, or much else! What a wonderful and at times intimidating adventure they experienced. Doerr's wonderfully atmospheric writing, captures perfectly what it feels like to experience the beauty and intensity that is Italy (not to mention parenthood). Highly recommend.
