I completely adored McPhee's first novel, "Bright Angel Time." I think it has my absolute favorite opening paragraph of any book I've ever read. And so I was excited to see that her latest is about Italy. She's one of those writers who amazes me with the things she's able to observe about people (how does one disconnect oneself so successfully?). The subject matter was a little bit difficult, though -- it's about two people, an American girl and Italian boy, who are the loves of each other's lives and don't stay together (focussing on the American). Still good.
