Jun 09, 2021 368

The author has a relationship with a city that he describes as magical. After living in Rome, he realized that everything in this place has a story: the people, the buildings, the statues, even the street corners. In this book he gathers these stories, having interviewed street performers, Romans, expats, historians and archaeologists.

Reading this book transports the reader into another world and reveals the city through its stories that are informative, funny and insightful. The title of the book is: She Seduced Me: A Love Affair with Rome and the author is Mark Tedesco. The book begins with: "I resisted, but she drew me back. I stayed away, but she beckoned me. I distanced myself, but she haunted me. I even rejected her but she did not abandon me..." 

She Seduced Me is that rare book in which the reader becomes part of a magical world in which places, monuments and artists come alive through their stories. In this case, however, that world is Rome and the reader becomes a participant in the ebb and flow of the city and gains insight into why so many have fallen in love with Rome despite its faults.

This work of nonfiction is divided into chapters in which the reader experiences aspects of art, culture, history and the present through the eyes of the writer and of the inhabitants of Rome, past and present.

Mark Tedesco is a writer and educator residing in California. Having lived in Italy for eight years, he enjoys weaving stories connecting the present to the past and exploring how deep human longings are expressed in relationships, events, culture and history. 

“Lights up the whole place as if I am there. Very magical, mystical, captivating, tears in my eyes when I knew I was at the end...you can see/hear the smile on his face with words as he describes his most treasured scenes.” -Amazon Review
