Incontinent on the Continent

My Mother, Her Walker, and Our Grand Tour of Italy

I took my mom on a six-week road trip through Italy to restore our relationship, and all I got was a lousy drinking problem. Well, not exactly. But if you are a harried, strong-willed daughter who is trying to make peace with your strong-willed, opinionated mother, there will be alcohol. So fasten your seatbelts and prepare for a raucous ride. If you keep your eyes open you will discover that we are not much different from those with whom we fight.

This was the most difficult book I have written because I wanted the story to be so different, so much lighter and kinder, but it wasn’t in me. Mothers and daughters: It’s complicated.
