Summary
The author describes the year he spent in Rome after winning the Rome Prize, including his adventures around the city, life in a foreign but welcoming country, and parenthood as it applies to his newborn twins
Summary
Imagine moving to a foreign country for a year...with 6-month-old twin boys in tow! That's just what author Anthony Doerr and his wife did in 2004 after he won the prestigious Rome Prize, which offers an aspiring writer a stipend and a place to live in the Eternal City for a year. In this memoir, first-time parent Doerr writes eloquently of children, sleepless nights, intriguing Romans, the funeral of John Paul II, and the multitude of things to see and do in the centuries-old city that hosted the Summer Olympics back in 1960. -- Description by Dawn Towery
