At twenty-seven years old, M. E. Evans had just graduated from college, twice, and still had no idea what to do with her life besides frequent strip clubs and fantasize about being a woman known for a sort of vague, unnamed success. But when her plans to become a better version of herself are derailed by the devastating loss of her brother, she moves to Italy no longer for personal growth but for self-preservation. While abroad, she finds herself surrounded by a gaggle of lunatics, like-minded eccentrics and an Italian man with majestic chest hair and an impossible to win-over family.

In the irreverent and hilarious Naked (In Italy), Evans tells the story of how she came to Florence for its rolling green hills, cheap Chianti, and sexy Italian men only to realize that personal growth isn’t always rainbows and unicorns. Sometimes it’s falling down, agoraphobia, and a mother-in-law who won’t let go of your thongs.   

Gritty, poignant, and howlingly funny, Evans’ memoir strips bare the myth of la dolce vita and shows us what it means to be beautifully flawed.
