Annoying the Saints: Stories of My Life in Italy

ByAnn Tatangelo

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
An entertaining true story of the author's first 10 years of living with her husband's Italian family. The mindset, the bureaucracy and the comedy of everyday life. “What came was unexpected: Enzo Tatangelo, a fifty-year-old Italian bachelor, with no character defects to account for his single status and no children. In 1998, after just one year of dating, we got married. We had a ceremony in a small church in Toronto with our Canadian family and a religious ceremony in Italy, surrounded by Enzo’s family; my sister Barbara; my mother Margaret and the mother of my first husband, Edna. After two years of marriage, I took an early retirement and we moved to Italy to live with and eventually care for his parents.” —from the Prologue Amateur genealogist, Ann Tatangelo chronicles her first experiences of being emerged in the new customs and traditions of family life in Italy, including death, dying and cemetery protocol. Along the way she accompanies a young rising star, Anna Tatangelo, to festivals, encounters a six thousand dollar German Shepard, and builds a new life in a country worlds away from the one she'd known.
