Italy or perhaps France? Back in 2017 I discussed Peter Mayle's book A Year in Provence about his adventures among his French neighbors This past week I read Eric Newby's 1994 memoir A Small Place in Italy I actually chose Newby's book a British paperback edition obtained from a second hand bookstore through simply because I wanted to read something else by Newby In the past I've discussed his famous books The Last Grain Race and A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush as well as last month his collection of essays A Traveller's LifeWhile not the best of Newby's writing A Small Place in Italy as it turned out had a special interest for me The house he and his wife ended up buying in the mid 1960s named I Castagni was near Sarzana in the hills about five miles behind Lerici on the Ligurian coast Lerici is just five miles south of La Spezia and La Spezia is the southern entrance to the Cinue Terre As some will recall
