Though the title may sound like an outsider’s complaint, it betrays the whimsical name of the book’s tongue-in-cheek humor. Italians Dance and I’m a Wallflower: Adventures in Italian expression is, in fact, ‘Italy from the inside-out’—product of the author’s fifteen years of permanent Italian living. Linda Falcone’s irreverent, affectionate vignettes spotlight the mentality, temperament and identity of a country whose citizens truly ‘step into speech.’
In Italy, speaking is not just an action—it’s a state of being!
Falcone’s quick, witty prose captures the essence of everyday Italian situations and extraordinary conversations that make language and laughter the true key to cultural understanding.
