Description for AN ITALIAN AFFAIR by Laura Fraser:

When Laura Fraser's husband leaves her for his high school sweetheart, she takes off, on impulse, for the Italian island of Ischia , to nurse her shattered ego. There she meets M., an aesthetics professor from Paris with an oversized love of life. What they both assume will be a casual vacation tryst turns into a passionate, transatlantic love affair, as they rendezvous in Marrakech, Lago Maggiore, Stromboli, London, and San Francisco---each encounter a delirious immersion into a place (sumptuous food and wine, dazzling scenery, lush gardens, and vibrant streetscapes) and into each other. And each experience also becomes for laura another step toward a fully recovered sense of her emotional and sexual self.

Both travelogue and memoir, AN ITALIAN AFFAIR is wonderfully made of rich, sensual detail, with the irresistible honesty of a story told from and about the heart.
