"Annoying the Saints" is a wonderful story of adventure and new beginnings by Ann Tatangelo who moved across the Atlantic into the quaint, ancient town of Sora, Italy. It is a true story of the author’s life experiences for the past several years and her discovery of a different way of life, with her new husband’s multigenerational Italian family. Ann presents a unique, intimate, in depth exploration of age-old traditions, attitudes, beliefs and the fascinating Italian mindset. Such things as earthquake rumblings, mind-blowing bureaucracy, bone-chilling cold, frustrating power shortages, historical facts, and impassioned family interaction are woven together in a most entertaining fashion, dusted by the author’s keen sense of dry humor. Should you happen to be a fan of the author’s lovely and talented niece, Anna Tatangelo, you will delight in the stories of the early years of Anna’s singing career when Ann frequently accompanied her on tour. If you love Italy, or just want... More > to learn more about Italian culture, this is a must read! I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it quite difficult to put down.< Less
