Publishers Description: From her rooftop terrace, Penelope looks out across the sparkling waters of the Bay of Naples, and into a garden of lemon trees and magnolias. Has her Italian dream come true? Imagine catching a ferry home and stepping onto a waterfront lined with multicoloured buildings, busy with fishing boats and couples strolling to their favourite cafe. For Penny and her Italian love Alfonso, the idyllic island of Procida can offer the life they are looking for. But first Penny has to find a way into its small community. One thing she has in common with the locals is a love of food, so she sets herself a goal - to master the Procidan cuisine and become more than just a visitor. Across kitchen tables, in bustling cafes, and over long lunches under vine-covered pergolas, Penny learns the art of Italian cooking, builds friendships, and discovers the rhythms and secrets of island life. PRAISE for See Naples and Die: 'This is a bewitching, true tale of a tantalising city. Magnifico!' Marie Claire 'frank, funny and honest' Notebook 'Her down to earth tone and genuine curiosity make for an interesting and insightful read' Sun-Herald PRAISE for When in Rome: Winner of the Grollo Ruzzene Foundation Prize in the Victorian Premier's Literary Awards 'Written engagingly and with great honesty, Penelope Green's experiences definitely do not include restoring any farmhouses... Funny and full of heart.' The Australian Women's Weekly 'Green deserves to be congratulated on her bravery and candour... and her descriptions of Rome are so vivid you can almost smell the coffee.'
