Picking up everything and moving to a new place is never an easy task. However, Terry and his wife (along with their beloved cat) took the challenge to a whole new level. After years of dealing with the hustle and bustle of Brooklyn, New York, Terry needed a change of scenery and an intra-continental move would not suffice.
Terry H Bhola
With a longstanding inclination towards the picturesque countryside of Italy, there was no question as to where their new residence would be.
However, upon arriving in the scenic countryside of Umbria, Terry and his wife soon realised their transatlantic transition would be accompanied by some unexpected turbulence. Within the pages of Searching for Wild Asparagus in Umbria, Terry vividly and humorously describes the couple's encounters with the local population, territorial creatures, wild snowstorms, recurring plumbing problems, and other unexpected issues, while trying to make their modestly built villetta into a real home – and earn a decent living.
Searching for Wild Asparagus in Umbria is an intriguing and deliciously candid memoir, unique in its authorial perspective. Terry H Bhola not only conveys the surprising and often comical experiences that he and his wife encountered while settling into a new country, but also reveals the mood of modern Italy as a nation not known for embracing diversity, contending with immigration.
Seasoned with countless comical scenes, Searching for Wild Asparagus in Umbria is an innovative dolce vita tale that will delight readers from cover to cover.
