When Fernando spots her in a Venice cafe and knows immediately that she is The One, Marlena de Blasi is caught off guard. A divorced American woman travelling through Italy, she thought she was satisfied with her life. Yet within a few months, she quits her job as a chef, sells her house, kisses her two grown-up kids goodbye, and moves to Venice. Once there, she finds herself sitting in sugar-scented pasticcerie, strolling through sixteenth-century palazzi, renovating an apartment overlooking the seductive Adriatic Sea, and preparing to wed a virtual stranger in an ancient stone church. As this transplanted American learns the hard way about the peculiarities of Venetian culture, we are treated to an honest, often comic view of how two middle-aged people, both set in their ways but also set on being together, build a life. A THOUSAND DAYS IN VENICE is filled with the foods and flavours of Italy and peppered with recipes and culinary observations. But the main course here is about a woman who falls in love with both a man and a city, and finally finds the home she didn't know she was missing.

About Marlena De Blasi

Marlena de Blasi has been a chef, a journalist, a food and wine consultant and a restaurant critic. The author of two cookbooks, one of which won the James Beard Award, she now directs gastronomic tours through Tuscany and Umbria.

    Hello! This review has been so helpful. I just recently created a website on godaddy with the website builder. I am very pleased with it. I put in a tab for "Shop" and am ready now to get a store going so that people can link to the store from the website. And that now is where I am stuckЙ.is the go daddy quick shopping cart not the way to go? (If I used that, I would need the premium offerЙdoes that include everything I need to be set for an online store?) I'm trying to figure out the best route to go. Am I better off with making a store from shopify? I didn't see you mention anything about the go daddy quick shop that they offer. I'm new at this, so any advice would be welcome and appreciated! Thanks!

    I am in the second year of PhD and just received 2 offeres to publish of course on my own budget. If I depose so much effort in research and try to write something pertinent where is my reward? No incentive?this world is so messed up! I appreciate so much this blog.

      The only thing we still believe is that you still need a designer to help with the aesthetic. If you want your website to stand out from competitors, have it fit your brand, and just feel unique from the basic theme structure. SquareSpace also makes it super easy for us designers to do this. Another way of simplifying the process.

      Would also like to have the ability for people to give selected feedback on the site. I am vacillating between Wix and Squarespace.

    For the most part, unless you have books in Golden, Silver and Bronze age, no retail buyers are going to be interested.
