ABOUT THE BOOK: Zack Curtis truly dreads his thirtieth birthday. Estranged from his family and friends, he hopes his trip to Italy will lift his spirits and trigger the inspiration for a happier life. But he soon offends an elusive mobster who threatens to turn his dream trip into a nightmare. From the splendor of Amalfi, to the grandeur of Rome, to the pageantry of Siena during its Palio Festival, John Meyer presents a unique travel memoir that masterfully combines a love story with an exhilarating adventure. Brimming with wit and humor, Bullets, Butterflies, and Italy is a literary travelogue enlivened with passion, jealousy, betrayal, and hope.

Top Customer Reviews
Zack represents "every-man" who, not quite in the grip of mid-life, realizes time is running out to make something of his life. Issues concerning mortality, the meaning of happiness and the pursuit of dreams are confronted with humour and vigour. Local descriptions, the memoir aspect of the book, contribute to Zack's discovery of the "Dolce Vita" that is the ethos of Italy. If you have never been to Italy Meyer's descriptions of local colour and historic sites will make you want to go. If you have been, you will recognize people and places and will be inspired to return. Tourism Italy should be sending Meyer kick-backs!
