Description

LibraryThing member jwood Anthony Doerr won the prestigious Rome prize, getting a year in the fascinating city. Joining him was his wife, along with their six month old twin boys. With Doerr's tremendous writing skills, he lovingly describes present day Rome, its colorful sights, culture and history enhanced by enjoying this year with his young sons.

This book is a testament to one of the world's greatest and most ancient cities as well as the joys and challenges of parenting twins. LibraryThing member baystateRA.

Additional information

LibraryThing member SeriousGrace. Imagine coming home from the hospital after your wife has just given birth to twins and discovering you have won an award that will send you to Rome for a year, an award you didn't ask for or even know about. So, six months later you pack up aforementioned wife and boys and off to Rome you go. Doerr spends the next year reading Pliny, exploring the ancient city and marveling at life BT before twins and AT after twins. He is observant and witty on all accounts but by his own admission is too busy staring at Italy to write anything constructive.

Until Four Seasons is born. If you are to read just one page of Four Seasons in Rome I strongly recommend reading page , starting with "What is Rome". LibraryThing member devilish2. A beautiful meditation on writing, Rome, twins, life, architecture, history, learning Italian, light, starlings. Motifs recur and curl back into the storyline. LibraryThing member kerns Shows that: if you keep a journal if you get a fancy prize that lets you live somewhere interesting if you and spouse-wife just had twins if you just wrote a great book then you can publish anything fun to read, easy to read, life in Rome-speaking no Italian and changing diapers … more.

LibraryThing member alanteder. This is a lovely memoir filled with very evocative portraits of people and places in Rome and often fascinating trivia about the "Eternal City. Doerr worked on the early writing and research for his later Pulitzer Prize winning novel "All the Light We Cannot See" and completed the short story "Village " about the Chinese Three Gorges Dam project collected in "Memory Wall" during this time and wrote his notes and journal entries that became the basis of this book.
