This personal travel book about Italy is written by the author of the prize-winning Allegro Postillions and The Strangers' Gallery. The author's travels take him to an Italy of neglected grandeur, hidden beauty and preposterous paradox - where the past lies in wait for the present and where history is never far away. The book looks at a magician's cave in Piedmont, Chinese mummies in Umbria, Tuscan nightingales and bumps in the Venetian night.

When Abraham Lincoln appointed William Dean Howells Consul to Venice, the young writer embarked on a journey that would leave an indelible impression on his life and work. Howells lived in Italy for four years, from 1861, during the pivotal and tumultuous period of Italian reunification. Italian Journeys, Howell's engrossing memoir of this time, describes his adventures across the country - from Genoa, a hotbed of nationalistic fervour and the city from which Garibaldi had led the Expedition of the Thousand only a year before; to the cultural and political powerhouse of Naples, which had only just become part of the Kingdom of Italy and from there to Rome, focus for the hopes of a fractured country. Travelling by land and sea, Howells was inspired at every turn - as much by the fevered events of the time as by the cultural and historical wealth of the country - and his beautifully-rendered portrait has become a classic of travel literature, essential for all those who, like him, have loved Italy.

Although it can be read in its own right, "Now and Then in Tuscany" is a sequel to "Tuscan Roots" and carries on the story of Anna and Francesco Starnucci with their family in Tuscany. It is a lovingly researched account of young Giuseppe Starnucci at the start of the twentieth century when he accompanies shepherds down to the coast from his village in the Tuscan Apennines. This "transumanza" lasted for five months every winter and encompassed many hardships, including the ever-present threat of malaria, bandits and long separations from family. Giuseppe's adventures are re-lived by his great grandson's family one hundred years later. The two stories are interwoven, each generation on a journey of self-awareness. Along the way, there are trials and dilemmas for both families to deal with in their own way. "Now and Then in Tuscany" is a story of hardship, secrets and passion which brings to light the customs and people of rural Tuscany. The author evokes the particular scents and sounds of a bygone mountain life and her writing has been praised as: "a great combination of a true account and fiction."
