Teaser Tuesday: The Italian Lover

It was going to be a difficult shot, a huge scene to mount, and she still didn't have written permission to use the piazza, though the mayor, whom she'd taken to lunch at Cibreo, with Franco Bevilacqua and Michael, had promised that there would be no difficulties.

And they still had the sex scenes to do, and they'd have to be careful because they couldn't release the film with an NC-17 rating.

-- The Italian Lover by Robert Hellenga

I picked this teaser because this book is about making a movie. If you aren't interested in how movies get made, this book won't be interesting to you. I'm trying to expand my brain to take an interest, but I find myself reading through this quickly. I love the parts about being in Italy, but I am not drawn into the story.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.


  1. Expanding your horizons is always worth the effort and time. At least you can read about Italy as a backdrop!

  2. Lorin -- Thanks for visiting!

    Christine -- I agree. And I am enjoying the book. Learning about making movies isn't a burning interest of mine, but it can keep my attention for 340 pages.

  3. An interesting teaser! My post is here.

  4. I'd like to read about how movies are made too. Maybe this isn't the book for that. But I did enjoy the teaser.

  5. This one is sitting on my TBR shelf - I am really looking forward to it!

    Here's my teaser at my brand new website!
