"A House in Sicily" by Daphne Phelps

Posted on Wed 14 October 2009 in ClubReading

Daphne Phelps inherited a house in Sicily called Casa Cuseni. At the time, Daphne had no knowledge of Italian, no money, and was war-weary. At 34, she moved to the small Sicilian town of Taormina expecting to sell the house.

After 50 years and guests like Tennessee Williams, Bertrand Russel, Henry Faulkner and Roald Dahl, Daphne Phelps has a wonderful story to tell.

This is a charming and entertaining memoir, full of fun and earthy stories told in a no-nonsense style.
