Mangia! Eat! That's the word most often heard from the big Italian family on Main Street that lives in the small town of Mountain Brooke, West Virginia. Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains, D'Luca daughter Nicole is sibling number seven in a food-infatuated family that obsesses, overreacts, and overeats on every occasion. Her hot-tempered and hot-pepper loving relatives all live within a stone's throw of each other and always seem to be in a mountainous state of confusion as they come to the rescue of an always-neurotic Nicole. Follow d'eatin,' d'screamin,' d'crazy D'Luca family in their fast-paced adventure through a beautiful autumn as food and frivolity are the name of the game. Nicole is preparing for the family's annual Halloween bash in the hills, where the festive daytime party has the potential to turn into a Halloween nightmare. With the help of her close-knit family and friends, they eat, scream, and cuss their way out of this slapstick saga that gets more sarcastic with every passing page. Big mouths with big hearts have big fun no matter how crazy their intertwined lives become in this slice-of-life satire where meatballs are always on the menu. Enjoy old-fashioned stores, quirky owners, and quick-witted dialogue along with corny cliches, more puns than you can shake a schtick at, and plenty of peculiar personalities that poke fun of everyone in this heartwarming and often hilarious story. Faster than Nicole can tell her sugar-crazed twins, "No more candy!" you'll be saying, "Madonna mia! I can't believe I read the whole thing!" (And don't read it on an empty stomach; you'll be sorry)!Biografía del autor:
Annette Rose has spent what feels like a lifetime baking, eating, dieting, and doing a lot of screaming. She enjoys her life in the country and considers herself an expert on Italian family get-togethers, small town living, and a mundane lifestyle. Living in the same small town all of her life has proved to be a blessing as well as a curse. Luckily, the beauty of the West Virginia hills, daily conversations with her siblings, and both of her colorful daughters are always a source of inspiration. She feels fortunate that her husband enjoys British comedies so much that it has allowed her to write Eat, Scream, and be Merry (mostly) in peace. She is constantly explaining the definition of satire to her family and friends, and they believe her humor is an attempt to stay sane in a crazy world.
