The Italian Summer
Golf, Food, and Family at Lake Como
A charming narrative of a glorious summer of golfing, eating, and learning how to slow down and enjoy life.
The best-selling author of Breakfast with Buddha, Golfing with God, Revere Beach Boulevard and others, combines two of his greatest passions—travel and golf—in this humorous and poignant look at Mediterranean life. Roland Merullo was feeling a little burnt out by the frantic pace of life in the United States and decided to rent an Italian villa near the shore of Lake Como in a small town called Mezzegra. He arrived in Italy with his wife and two young daughters determined to relax, slow down, and enjoy life in the manner of their Italian hosts. Merullo also resolved to play a little golf and frequented the many gorgeous golf courses that populate the countryside.
With his customary wit, he shares the entertaining account of his trip through Italy in the wonderful The Italian Summer. Composed of tales from some of Italy's finest golf courses, descriptions of the meals Merullo and his family enjoyed, and portraits of the various eccentrics they met along the way, The Italian Summer brings to life the myriad joys of Italian life in a way that all lovers of food, wine, and the proverbial "good walk spoiled" will savor. The perfect gift for golf enthusiasts and armchair travelers, The Italian Summer pays homage to a slower, richer way of life—one filled with good food, pleasant company, and beautiful surroundings.
"Merullo paints a vivid portrait of a glorious adventure for golfers and gourmets . . .The Italian Summer is simply a wonderful read."
