From Library Journal: Whenever Italians want to stress the cultural variety of their nation, or nostalgically mention places where they really would like to live, they speak of the Cento Citta. . . .; Hofmann, a 30-year resident of Italy and a veteran New York Times correspondent, profiles his favorite 100 places to visit. He takes us on a series of walking/auto tours of each of six regions. Starting with a city;s central square, town hall, or church, he treats us to a delightful blend of historic and literary past and present. Similar to Baedeker’s Italy , but with less emphasis on accommodations and more on native appeal. Recommended. Ann E. Cohen, Broome Cty. P.L., Binghamton, N.Y.

At the age of twenty-eight, stuck in a dead-end job in London, and on the run from a broken heart, Bryce Corbett takes a job in Paris, home of l’amour and la vie boheme; he is determined to make the city his own—no matter how many bottles of Bordeaux it takes. He rents an apartment in Le Marais, the heart of the city’s gay district, hardly the ideal place for a guy hoping to woo French women. He quickly settles into the French work/life balance with its mandatory lunch hour and six weeks of paid vacation. Fully embracing his newfound culture, Corbett frequents smoky cafes, appears on a television game show, hobnobs with celebrities at Cannes, and attempts to parse the nuances behind French politics and why French women really don’t get fat. When he falls in love with a Parisian showgirl, he realizes that his adopted city has become home.
