John is traveling to northern Italy for a multi-month stay in western Tuscany. His new book, to be published by Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin's Press, will delve into this little-known part of one of Italy's best-known regions. A lot is written about Florence, Siena, et. al., farther to the east. But Tuscany's far west, with its own unique culture and stories, gets short shrift among modern Italy-based travel narratives. The new book, with its title yet to be discovered, is expected out in late spring/early summer 2014.
