EXTRA VIRGIN A Young Woman Discovers the Italian Riviera, Where Every Month is Enchanted

by | Read by Miriam Margolyes

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2000

When Annie Hawes and her sister leave their native England for a summer adventure in Italy, neither realizes that they will come to love Liguria so much that they won't want to leave. In this memoir, Hawes relays her experiences as a foreigner in a small Italian community. At times funny and heartwarming, Hawes recounts with affection her experiences with local people and customs. Miriam Margolyes, as expected, brings the text to life, including Hawes's sometimes condescending attitude toward a culture radically different from her own. Margolyes portrays this attitude flawlessly while conveying the author's love for her new surroundings and humor at her many faux pas in her adopted country. H.L.S.
