account of those idyllic weeks recalls Calvin Trillin in its casual

"…Merullo attempts to capture the sights, smells and sounds of the
Italian and Swiss countryside… he tries to incorporate the slower
pace of living into his own life, but finds it almost impossible.
Part travel guide, part memoir, Merullo attempts to offer
meditations on the richness of a life lived more slowly with good
food and good company, but succeeds at little more than his frantic
attempts to find a few good golf courses far away from home."
