Sunshine, warmth, lemon blossom . . . Springtime in glorious Southern Italy can go to your head. Especially if you are escaping an overbearing husband, the embarrassingly public loss of your company, an interfering mother who still tries to run your life or the pain of a husband's affair with a girl young enough to be his daughter. As the Italian sun ripens the lemons in the groves that tumble down the hillsides and the Mediterranean dazzles beneath them, assertive Angela, extrovert Sylvie, unconfident Claire and mousy Monica find burgeoning friendship and begin to blossom in quite unexpected ways. Packed with memorable characters - from the acid-tongued Grand Old Man of Modern Art who lives next door - to the aspiring gigolo who thinks nothing of a forty year age gap, Maeve Haran's new novel is a witty and entertaining reminder of why going a little mad in the sun can sometimes be exactly what you need.

This volume investigates the ways in which Italian women writers, filmmakers, and performers have represented female identity across genres from the immediate post-World War II period to the turn of the twenty-first century. Considering genres such as prose, poetry, drama, and film, these essays examine the vision of female agency and self-actualization arising from women artists’ critique of female identity. This dual approach reveals unique interpretations of womanhood in Italy spanning more than fifty years, while also providing a deep investigation of the manipulation of canvases historically centered on the male subject. With its unique coupling of generic and thematic concerns, the volume contributes to the ever expanding female artistic legacy, and to our understanding of postwar Italian women’s evolving relationship to the narration of history, gender roles, and these artists’ use and revision of generic convention to communicate their vision.

Andrei Navrozov has described himself as a political refugee from Russia, a cultural refugee from America, and a gastronomic refugee from Britain. Yet the theme of his new book is altogether less flippant: where in the homogenizing and modernizing Europe would the hardened individualist find a last refuge? The answer to that question takes the reader on an uncompromising, occasionally eccentric but deeply personal and always entertaining travelogue with the author on his first day in Rome to his last night at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, and through a number of Italian cities, with sidelong glances at 70s Moscow, 80s New York, and 90s London. All of which leads him to "home" and the end of his flight from social progress: Palermo. Italy. Accompanying him to each of these destinations is the author's Phiz, the Russian photographer Gusov. His forty-eight arresting images serve to give another dimension to Navrozov's ideas, arguments, and impressions.
