“When I migrated from the banks of the East River to the Tiber shores the path was strewn with bureaucratic boulders, landmines, and pitfalls. I offer the tale of my odyssey as an object lesson to would-be fellow cosmopolites in that art of abandoning all hope the Italians like to call pazienza.” Susan Levenstein
Author and journalist Alexander Stille currently resides in New York City and teaches Journalism at Columbia University. He also writes for The New York Review of Books, The New York Times and The New Yorker.
“Susan Levenstein’s Dottoressa is a smart, funny, charming, highly readable memoir of practicing medicine in Italy and is full of astute insights into the way Italy works.” A. Stille
