Nostalgia: general

story of self-redemption, set against an irresistible Sardinian backdrop, perfect for fans of Ruth Hogan and Andrew Sean Greer.

Running away from your problems is easy. Staying away from them is harder. . .

Giacomo is stuck in a funk he can't shake - and a translation of Moby Dick he can't finish. When he's summoned home to Sardinia, to say a final goodbye to his dying grandmother, he's offered the perfect opportunity to escape.

On the noisy, sun-drenched island, Giacomo reconnects with long-lost friends and overbearing relatives, relives the childhood he once couldn't wait to leave behind, and rediscovers new joie-de-vivre within him. Never mind that he's making no progress on his translation. . .

When the time comes to leave once more, Giacomo wonders: has he fallen back in love with his home-island? Or has he been hiding from something which he needs the courage to return and confront?

But most importantly - is his grandma really as ill as she's claiming to be?

My Sardinian Summer is a laugh-out-loud, poignant and uplifting ode to the simple pleasure and small joys in life, perfect for fans of Andrew Sean Greer and Ruth Hogan.
