Warm and deeply personal; I loved this memoir. Now I'd like to travel to Verona too! And re-read Romeo and Juliet!

This is part love story, part travelogue. It reads like fiction and I could not put it down. I especially loved learning about Romeo and Juliet as I did not study it in high school. Honestly, I wish I had had a teacher like Glenn back then as I might have actually enjoyed English class and Shakespeare!

An enjoyable read with three concurrent stories: the author's love life travails, the work of the Secretaries to Juliet in Verona, and his experiences teaching Romeo and Juliet to high school students. A very engaging read!

Update: Eat, Pray, Love from a male perspective. Added bonus is the tie in to Romeo and Juliet.

I can not wait to read this book!
WPL just hosted the author for a talk and after hearing him speak I am even more intrigued.
Sounds like a fascinating story.
