A remembrance that offers keen observations about cultural differences while celebrating the power of love. The American author and her two younger brothers were raised by a single mom, and her father, who was largely absent during the first nine years of her life, only sporadically visited. In , when she was 27, one of her siblings tragically died, plaguing her with feelings of guilt and a need to seize all the possibilities that life might have in store. She eventually found her niche as an artist; she first painted a series of images of vaginas in close-up and then moved on to video work in which she asked women to describe an orgasm on-camera. As Evans hit her creative stride, she began a relationship with a handsome Italian man named Francesco. Throughout this wittily acerbic memoir, Evans offers dry humor and sharp feminist insights.

If you've ever set foot in a foreign country or picked up a travel memoir you probably think you already know what M. Evans' Naked in Italy is about: a dreamy personal account of the life-altering beauty that is Italy.
