 I'm reading Rococo by Adriana Trigiani:

I want you to imagine my house. It's a classic English country cottage, nestled on an inlet overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in the borough of Our Lade of Fatima, New Jersey, about five miles north of Interlaken. The fieldstone exterior gives the illusion of a small fortress, so I softened the overall effect with white hyacinth shrubs and a blanket of sky-blue morning glories cascading over the dormers like loose curls on a cherub. After all, a man's home must first be inviting.

I just love reading Adriana Trigiani's books. Her writing is so descriptive, she just pulls you in and isn't the cover intriguing? Rococo is one of her earlier works and one of the few that I haven't read yet. It's about an interior decorator who takes on the project of his dreams.
 
Have you read anything by Adriana Trigiani?

  1. I haven't read this one, but I read her memoir, "Don't Sing at the Table" which I really enjoyed. That's the only one so far!
