Wilson grew up in D.C., studied creative writing and acting at Princeton, and has lived in Italy for the past nineteen years, working in television, film, and theater. In her first book, originally published as Only in Naples, the former actress recounts how a 1996 internship in Italy turned into a new life. It started with a blind date, but the chemistry was as much between Wilson and her date’s mother, Raffaella, as it was between her and her future husband. Before she knew it, Wilson was under Raffaella’s spell and learning the cultural and culinary skills required to cultivate true carnale: the quintessentially Neapolitan sense of living with comfort and confidence in one’s body. Written with sprezzatura, Wilson’s memoir is a love letter to Naples and to an irrepressible matriarch—and master cook.
