When I told David, my older brother, some of the crazy stories about everyday life in Italy, he suggested I should keep a diary and maybe, someday I could turn it into a book.
During 2008 I spent three months in Sicily, in a futile attempt to find work. Mr Sensible
knew thought I was mad, she was aware of the high unemployment in Sicily and couldn’t understand why I was heading south. She did explain to me that most Sicilians were heading north in their search for work.
Mrs Sensible was once again correct. I didn’t find any work, but I did have the beginnings of a book. While I was in Sicily I sat down and started to write notes on the bizarre and often hilarious day-to-day struggles of trying to survive in Italy with only Mrs Sensible and of course my English/Italian dictionary.
Here is the front cover.
I have launched the book on the crowdfunding site Kickstart to raise some funding to publish the book BIG LINK HERE.
I hope you enjoy my blog. If you do, please will you help me to, in Jennifer’s words, social media the crap out of my little book as soon as it is released.
