Saving Rome

Second Story Press


Far from the Tuscan Sun… is Saving Rome. Megan K. Williams, a Rome-based writer and correspondent, knows just how far. In her debut collection, Williams serves up the Eternal City as you’ve never seen it before, turning an insider’s eye on the love, mystery and unholy chaos of Rome. In nine funny and insightful stories, Williams delves into the lives of women searching for meaning (and survival) in an ancient metropolis awhirl in honking Fiats, smouldering cigarettes and teetering high heels. Piercing, quirky, hilarious and heartbreaking, Saving Rome’s women are trapped in a new-millennium Roman circus sideshow. One follows her husband to Italy only to become obsessed with an eccentric pet-shop owner. Another, a rattled mother, gives a carabiniere officer the finger over a parking dispute, and is horrified when he trails her home. Not to mention the jilted innamorata who pushes her tour-guide host to the thin edge of sanity.
