Anthony Doerr avec Four Seasons in Rome: On Twins, Insomnia and the Biggest Funeral in the History of the World
Four Seasons in Rome
‘Anthony Doerr is dazzling in this book, in the way he celebrates the joys as well as the pain of being a parent and in love, being a writer and being in Rome, reminding us that certain experiences never grow stale when they are expressed through the fresh eyes of a real writer.’ Azar Nafisi, author of Reading Lolita in Tehran
‘Anthony Doerr found himself in the perfect Eternal City with the eternal Paternal Problem: how to care for two beautiful newborn twins while still doing his work as a writer and student and observer. The result is a funny, precise, touching account of cultural barricades crossed and fatherly exhaustions overcome; a story of the universalities of parenting and the specificities of Roman life that will lift the heart of every parent and delight the mind of every lover of Italy.’ Adam Gopnik, author of ‘Through the Children's Gate and From Paris to the Moon’
Anthony Doerr lives in Boise, Idaho with his wife and twin sons. He is the author of ‘The Shell Collector’ and ‘About Grace’, and is one of Granta’s Best Young American Novelists.
