Publisher's Summary

Frances Angel, drunk and disgruntled, arrives in Italy to attend the I Zingari Art School, leaving behind her dazzling career as a successful theatrical impresario and returning to a distant and painful past. She falls into an eclectic group of performance artists, ex-soldiers and a housewife who really just wants to paint something to match her settee. In the village a scale replica of the La Scala opera house becomes the setting for the great drama of Frances' past to be played out on the world's smallest stage. Frances expected to find some answers but what she didn't expect was romance and quite so much farce.

    "Enthusiastic Applause!"

    This is brilliantly funny and brilliantly read by the author. I enjoyed literally every minute and will return for repeated listenings -- an attraction which sets this work above most of its companions in the humor genre.

    "Entertaining and very witty"

    A simple plot with some brilliant characters. Sandi Toksvig's sarcastic humour made me laugh out loud throughout this book. Very cleverly written and wonderfully narrated.

    "Pleasant beach/holiday read"

    This book is a pleasant beach/holiday read. It is not a masterpiece, but it is entertaining if you are not looking for anything to be taken too seriously. All in all it kept me company.
