Diary of a Tuscan Bookshop

The heartwarming story that inspired a nation, now an international bestseller

Alba Donati

Coup de coeur
Coup de coeur (Literature), by Flora

This lively diary kept by Italian poet-and-publisher-turned-bookseller, Alba Donati,whisks you away to beautiful rural Italy. Located in a cottage built into the Tuscan hills, The Bookshop On The Hill, is a space Donati has created for quiet moments reading in the garden, discovering inspiring new reads, and somewhere for a community to come together in celebration of books, reading and human connection. Following the life of her bookshop over several recent months is an inspiring insight into the life of someone who lives and breathes books, and who offers a wonderful example of how to turn dreams into reality, however hard that may seem.

'Like Chocolat meets Penelope Fitzgerald's The Bookshop, set in the Tuscan hills... A celebration of writing, words and people: delightful' Mail on Sunday

'A work of significant beauty... Inspiring about the continuing life of books, and about the ways in which our lives can change and our dreams can come true, if only we insist on believing in changes and dreams' Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours
