Florence in Ecstasy Cover Image

In this luminous, late-bloomer’s coming-of-age story, an American woman in crisis flees to Italy to sort out her life. In Florence, she finds work in a library, falls in with a crowd of locals, and avoids eating. A moving meditation on art, beauty, and the female struggle to own her life by any means necessary, the novel is also a lovely guide to the sights and churches of  Tuscany, a primer on female Italian saints, and an initiation into the art of rowing.
