Description
Phil Doran discusses his book, “The Reluctant Tuscan.” He begins by explaining how one day he was surprised by a call from his wife who informed him that she had bought a house in Italy. At the time he was working in Hollywood as a writer, for several well known television shows such as, “Who’s the Boss,” “Sanford and Sons,” and “The Wonder Years.” He explains that at first he was the reluctant Tuscan, but was eventually won over by the idea of living in Italy. Doran goes on to share several anecdotes about their experiences trying to renovate their house and bridging cultural barriers.
