Book Description:
A delightfully warm and intimate portrait of life in a small rural town in Tuscany.

In Maremma recounts David Leavitt and Mark Mitchell's restoration of a dilapidated 1950's farmhouse in southern Tuscany and the process by which they became initiated into a part of Italian life that foreigners rarely see. The pleasures of the olive harvest and picking wild asparagus are juxtaposed with the vagaries of political corruption and self perpetuating bureaucracy. Landscape and weather provide the stuff of reverie, as do the benefits of boredom and the longing for peanut butter. A celebration and exploration of a little known part of Italy, In Maremma is also a fond if sometimes critical corrective to other more rapturous portrayals of Tuscany.
