    In the tradition of M. F. K. Fisher and Peter Mayle, this enchantingly warm and witty memoir follows American-born Katherine Wilson on her adventures abroad, where a three-month rite of passage in Naples turns into a permanent embrace of this boisterous city on the Mediterranean. It is all thanks to a surprising romance, a new passion for food, and a spirited woman who will become her mother-in-law—and teach her to laugh, to seize joy, and to love.

    Paula and John met in Italy, fell in love, and married in Rome four years later. But less than a month after the wedding, tragedy struck. They had transferred from their Italian paradise to Warsaw, and, while reporting on an uprising in Romania, John was shot and nearly killed by sniper fire. Although he recovered from his physical wounds in less than a year, the process of healing had just begun. Unable to regain his equilibrium, he sank into a deep sadness that reverberated throughout their relationship. It was the abrupt end of what they’d known together and the beginning of a new phase of life neither had planned for. All of a sudden, Paula was forced to reexamine her marriage, her husband, and herself. Paula began to reconsider all of her previous assumptions about healing. She discovered that sometimes patience can be a vice and anger a virtue; that sometimes it is vital to make demands of the sick that they show signs of getting better. And she rediscovered the importance of the most fundamental of human rituals: the daily sharing of food around the family table. A universal story of hope and healing, Keeping the Feast is an account of one couple’s triumph over tragedy and illness—and a celebration of the simple rituals of life—even during the worst life crises. Beautifully written and tremendously moving, Paula’s story is a testament to the extraordinary sustaining powers of food and love and to the stubborn belief that there is always an afterward—there is always hope.

    Lynne Rossetto Kasper, author of The Splendid Table and host of PRI’s award winning radio program of the same name, is a master at transporting her readers and listeners into the fascinating world of the Italian countryside. In Stories from The Italian Country Table, Lynne brings to life her adventures in rural Italy. Stories from The Italian Country Table illustrates how, in Italy, eating well and coming together around the table are inseparable from the folklore, history, handmade foods, and storytelling so dear to the hearts of country people. You’ll enjoy polenta with new zest after hearing “Cheater’s Gold” and “Honeymooners and Corn Husk Mattresses.” Step into a Sicilian shepherd’s hut and practically taste the fresh-made sweet ricotta. Hear “How a Capon Became a Father,” celebrate gathering “The Dew of Midsummer’s Eve,” and learn the art of complaining Italian-style with “Eating White.” To make your Italian experience complete, Stories from The Italian Country Table comes with the first 30-minute Italian lesson in the Pimsleur Language Program—the revolutionary audio-only language learning system—as an added bonus. A perfect audio companion to the recipes featured in Kasper’s book, The Italian Country Table, this unique experience will immerse you in the culture and cuisine of the Italian countryside.
