Carrie asked Frances Mayes:

I'm looking forward to reading the new memoir. My husband and I are considering moving to Italy. How difficult was a transition like that for you?

Frances Mayes Well, I never moved full time. I like going back and forth. All my books talk about my relationship with my adopted country. Moving there for part of the year was one of my best decisions ever. Still, I would not stay forever--I like living in the US too.
