Om A Small Place in Italy

'Newby is of course a travel writer of near genius - wonderfully dry in the narration of the tribulations which so often afflict him and Wanda, and splendidly precise on the nuts and bolts of things ... Highly readable and dangerously liable to induce a craving for one's own patch of Italian paradise' Martin Gayford, Sunday Telegraph 'Newby is an incomparable, shrewd and witty travel writer ... immensely enjoyable' John Mortimer, Mail on Sunday 'Eric Newby must rank as one of the foremost travel writers of our age. Among his skills lies the ability to carry the reader with him on the most varied of journeys ... a sequel to his 1971 classic, 'Love and War in the Apennines'... [Newby's] good humour, and his loving eye for a way of life now disappearing, makes it a sterling contribution to that very particular shelf of English literature, describing life as lived among the Italians' Hugh Carless, Guardian 'A jovial account of living in Tuscany' Literary Review '[Newby's] book is cheerful, informative and often very funny' Times Literary Supplement 'There is a deep respect for human personality here, and a wealth of information scrupulously and precisely retailed' Daily Telegraph 'Beautifully written. Full of wisdom, humour and humanity, Newby is touching on the poignancy of life, its fleeting pleasures and ultimate, inevitable loss ... He is a perceptive interpreter of our dreams' Sunday Express 'Newby goes into satisfying detail about the people, the food and the landscape, and the house itself takes a central role in the book ... by observing the details of his surroundings with clarity and understanding, he gives the reader a gentle picture of a pleasant Arcadia' Wanderlust
