An Italian Affair Audiobook by Laura Fraser

Does this effectively draw the reader into her personal experiences? Secondly, I didn't like how the professor could have his own affairs, while still being with Laura on the side. Firstly, I was turned-off by the 'you' viewpoint that the main character 'Laura' uses throughout the entire book, I just couldn't stay focused on the story with that 'you' always looking back at me. A memoir about a recent divorcee and the affair she has with a married professor, over several rendevous in different cities. Does Fraser have reason to believe that he is also holding feelings back? She can afford to be discreet in the sexual passages because of the sensuality that pervades the book. Fraser did a great job telling a love affair story and keeping it tasteful, not loosing the story to the love affair alone.

Excerpt from An Italian Affair

an italian affair fraser laura

I am a long-time journalist and San Franciscan who loves travel and books. This may sound a little salty but I imagine if young American women can enjoy food, culture, and travel without a hot steamy affair to write about. What does each relationship teach Fraser about herself? This didn't get four stars for that reason alone. The professor, a man of the world who took such liaisons casually, had an easy, humorous, slightly mocking manner that was just what she needed to help her recover from her broken heart. You think you know what it means, since the sea princess says it after her one true love abandons her, but you ask the teacher anyway.
