Summary
"On the same day that his wife gave birth to twins, Anthony Doerr received the Rome Prize, an award that gave him a year-long stipend and studio in Rome...'Four Seasons in Rome' charts the repercussions of that day, describing Doerr's varied adventures in one of the most enchanting cities in the world, and the first year of parenthood. He reads Pliny, Dante, and Keats - the chroniclers of Rome who came before him - and visits the piazzas, temples, and ancient cisterns they describe. He attends the vigil of a dying Pope John Paul II and takes his twins to the Pantheon in December to wait for snow to fall through the oculus." --
Summary
Imagine moving to a foreign country for a year...with 6-month-old twin boys in tow! That's just what author Anthony Doerr and his wife did in 2004 after he won the prestigious Rome Prize, which offers an aspiring writer a stipend and a place to live in the Eternal City for a year. In this memoir, first-time parent Doerr writes eloquently of children, sleepless nights, intriguing Romans, the funeral of John Paul II, and the multitude of things to see and do in the centuries-old city that hosted the Summer Olympics back in 1960. -- Description by Dawn Towery
