Living in a Foreign Language
Living in a Foreign Language: A Memoir of Food, Wine and Love in Italy, by Michael Tucker, Copyright 2007
You may remember Michael and his wife, Jill, from the old TV series, LA Law. After the series ended, Michael and his wife bought a run down place in a little village in Italy, and them proceeded to learn the hard way how things actually get done in small towns like this in Italy. Everything is a challenge, from actually closing on the place, to determining land ownership, renovating, and getting people to actually complete the projects you hire them to do.
Michael’s got a great sense of humor, and a hearty appetite. Just my kind of person. He LOVES to eat the Italian food, and drink the wine, and especially in the company of a loose collection of people – other foreigners and locals alike. It’s just the way my family loves to travel and enjoy life, and this book inspired me to tell my own stories in my own way.
