A Book Sense Pick for May 2005, this is the humorous tale of how the author moved against his will and his better judgmentto Italy with his wife, only to rediscover himself, his marriage, and the importance of getting in touch with his inner Italian.
After years of working on a string of sitcoms, Phil Doran found himself on the outside looking in. Just as he and his peers had replaced the older guys when he was coming up the ranks, it was now happening to him. And it was freaking him out. He came home every night angry, burned- out, and exhausted. After twenty-five years of losing her husband to Hollywood, Dorans wife decided it was finally time for a changeso on one of her many solo trips to Italy she surprised her husband by purchasing a broken-down 300-year-old farmhouse for them to restore. "The Reluctant Tuscan" is about the authors transition from being a successful but overworked writer-producer in Hollywood to rediscovering himself and his wife while in Italy, and finding happiness in the last place he expected.

In the witty tone that made him a success as a writer in Hollywood, "The Reluctant Tuscan" captivates those who simply love a good travel narrative as well as anyone who loves the quirky humor of Bill Bryson, Dave Barry, and Jerry Seinfeld.
Praise for The Reluctant Tuscan:
Dorans brutally funny accounts . . . are enough to keep readers hooked until the last page.
"PUBLISHERS WEEKLY"
. . . disarmingly funny.
"THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC"
A truly funny book that reveals Italy as never before.
"THE GRAND RAPIDS PRESS"
