From the Publisher

"Luca Spaghetti is not only one of my favorite people in the world, but also a natural-born storyteller. . . . This [is a] marvelous book." -Elizabeth Gilbert

When Luca Spaghetti (yes, that's really his name) was asked to show a writer named Elizabeth Gilbert around Rome, he had no idea how his life was about to change. She embraced his Roman ebullience, and Luca in turn became her guardian angel, determined that his city would help Liz out of her funk.

Filled with colorful anecdotes about food, language, soccer, daily life in Rome, and Luca's own fish-out-of-water moments as a visitor to the United States-and culminating with the episodes in Liz's bestselling memoir, told from Luca's side of the table-Un Amico Italiano is a book that no fan of Eat, Pray, Love will want to miss.

But in a new Hollywood Reporter interview in honor of the show's 100th episode, creator Shonda Rimes revealed ABC tried to stop the memorable scene from making it to the final cut.  The only reason it did was Rhimes' own staunch insistence.  "I said, 'Go ahead, alter the scene,'" she said. "'We'll just have a lot

    The Walking Dead Deals a Grisly Blow

    MEGAN MCCLUSKEY DESPITE ITS NAME, The Walking Dead has never really been about the zombies. From the show’s first episode, in which Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) awakens from a coma to find the world as he knew it overrun by the undead, AMC’s hit drama has actually been character-driven, fueled by the relationships formed among a ragtag group of survivors navigating a post-apocalyptic landscape. But as the show has picked off those characters one by one, it’s veered toward the point of no return. That matters, considering that The Walking Dead has been the top-rated series on television for f

    When Less Plot Is Actually More

    AFTER WRITING SEVEN NOVELS AND three works of nonfiction, acclaimed British author Rachel Cusk began to find fiction “fake and embarrassing.” Two years ago, she explained to a British newspaper, “Once you have suffered sufficiently, the idea of making up John and Jane and having them do things together seems utterly ridiculous.” No surprise, then, that her 2014 novel Outline was anything but plot-driven. It was more like a series of observations by a narrator as she traveled to Greece to teach writing. The people she met along the way essentially became the subjects of miniature profiles craf
