Product description

Review

An intriguing book, very well written, well structured, entertaining and sometimes even challenging... a delightful and often humorous account of the author's evolving relationship with Italy as he comes to grips with everyday reality there... anecdotes provide both humour and vivid images of Italians and Italian life. (Judges of the Grollo Ruzzene Foundation Prize)

Dramatic, sensual and affectionately amusing, Head Over Heel is as good as a holiday. (John Bell, The Bell Shakespeare Company)

Harrison manages to get right under Italy's skin without stereotyping the people he meets and situations he finds himself in... Many have written books about their experiences living in foreign climes but few have done it as entertainingly, beautifully and - surprisingly - romantically as Harrison does here. (Sydney Morning Herald & Melbourne Age)

This is a funny and touching tale about the cultural divide with a sweet and passionate love story at its heart. For all those who have ever had a brief holiday in Italy and said, £You know, I could really live here,' read this and know that it may not be that easy. And for those who know Italy intimately and love her all the same, enjoy Head Over Heel and its taste of la dolce vital (The Courier Mail)

Book Description

Head over heels on the heel of the boot of Italy. Among olive groves and cobblestone lanes, Chris takes us on a journey into the heart of Southern Italy.
