See Naples and Die by Penelope Green - Books - Hachette AustraliaThe second book in a much loved Italian travel memoir trilogy which also includes the delightful When in Rome and Girl by Sea. After three years living and working in Italy, Australian journalist Penelope Green needs a reason to stick around - true love or gainful employment. When a job comes up in Naples - crime capital of Italy, home of pizza and the Camorra, and crouched at the foot of a volcano - Penny launches herself into the unknown. With her innate curiosity and eye for detail, Penny prises Naples open to show us the real city, in all its splendour She uncovers a chaotic metropolis when crime and poverty blur with abundant natural beauty, and where the shadow of Mount Vesuvius is a daily reminder that life must be lived for the moment. And when Penny meets a bass player in a local band, she thinks she might have found that other reason to stick around.
