Description
In 1983, a pale Annie Hawes and her equally pale sister decide to leave England for the sun-drenched olive groves of a small Italian town in Liguria. With fantasies of handsome, tanned men and swimming in the sea, they sign up to graft roses -- something they know nothing about, but figure they can fake. Although they quickly realize that Liguria is not Tuscany -- it is undiscovered by tourists, and its inhabitants have strict ideas about what young women should and shouldn't be doing ("to go swimming in seawater outside the months of July or August is even worse for your health than drinking cappuccino after 12 noon!") -- they simply cannot resist the charm that the little town exudes.<P>Annie, who has never wanted to settle down anywhere, now doesn't want to leave, and sets her sights on a particular farmhouse -- how can she make it her own? Extra Virgin is a wonderful memoir of 18 years living as a Ligurian, written with irresistible verve and humor, and is sure to put Liguria on the minds of travelers -- armchair and real.
