**Book Giveaway of Five(5) copies of The Italian Lover**
A special thanks to Valerie at Hachette Book Group.
An exhilarating novel of romance, art, and food in Florence, featuring the beloved Margot Harrington, who graced Robert Hellenga’s The Sixteen Pleasures. Margot Harrington’s memoir about her discovery in Florence of a priceless masterwork of Renaissance erotica – and the misguided love affair it inspired – is now, 25 years later, being made into a movie. Margot, with the help of her lover, Woody, writes a script that she thinks will validate her life. Of course their script is not used, but never mind – happy endings are the best endings for movies, as Margot eventually comes to see. At the former convent in Florence where “The Sixteen Pleasures” – now called “The Italian Lover,” – is being filmed, Margot enters into a drama she never imagined, where her ideas of home, love, art, and aging collide with the imperatives of commerce and the unknowability of other cultures and other people.
