Brilliant read if you feel deprived of beauty, inspiration and zest for life. It’s like a wake-up call really, or a How to enjoy life for Dummies. It’s the kind of book you want to throw in someones face to wake up the dead when you visit Sweden. This book, where American born Alan Epstein describes all the beauty of the Roman lifestyle, makes me want to eat it. It might as well be a giant piece of pastry or a morning espresso. Just read it, you’ll see. This is how everyone should live and love.
