Who could talk and explain Italy and Italians to a foreigner better than an Englishman who has lived in our country for over 30 years? The most famous Englishman in Italy – millions copies of his books and language courses sold – tells with verve and humor about his long, boundless love for this country and for all the oddities that make Italians so unique. A book in which Sloan reconstructs dozens of amusing episodes that unveil a lot not only of the Italians, but also of him as an Englishman.After inventing a series of revolutionary courses to teach English language, John Peter Sloan finally tells the longest love story of his life: the one with Italy. A love that blossomed even before he arrived from Birmingham, on a plane where everyone mysteriously held “his family jewels” to avoid who knows what catastrophe and applauded the pilot after landing … Because Italy has immediately exercised on him a mad, domineering charm and never mind if driving in the Italian road traffic is impossible …’Impossible not to laugh, so much is irreverent, bewildered, surreal.’ – La Stampa
