Comprising short stories, novel excerpts, essays, journal entries, letters, and poetry. Italy in Mind captures all the contradictions of the Italian scene: enduring tradition and trendy consumerism, ravishing landscapes and urban sprawl, demonic bureaucracy and unvanquishable human warmth. Each entry is accompanied by a biography of the author, and the entire collection is preceded by a lively introduction by editor Alice Leccese Powers. The result is a work of enchantment, a tribute both to Italy and to generations of literary travelers.
