reasons why this would be a terrible idea To begin with, Giovanni is ten years younger than I am, and, like most Italian guys in their twenties, he still lives with his mother These facts alone make him an unlikely romantic partner for me, given that I am a professional American woman in my mid thirties, who has just come through a failed marriage and a devastating, interminable divorce, followed immediately by a passionate love affair that ended in sickening heartbreak This loss upon loss has left me feeling sad and brittle and about seven thousand years old Purely as a matter of principle I wouldn t inflict my sorry, busted up old self on the lovely, unsullied Giovanni Not to mention that I have finally arrived at that age where a woman starts to question whether the wisest way to get over the loss of one beautiful brown eyed young man is indeed to promptly invite another one into her bed This is why I have been alone for many months now This is why, in fact, I have decided to spend this entire year in celibacy.To which the savvy observer might inquire Then why did you come to Italy To which I can only replyespecially when looking across the table at handsome Giovanni Excellent question Giovanni is my Tandem Exchange Partner That sounds like an innuendo, but unfortunately it s not All it really means is that we meet a few evenings a week here in Rome to practice each other s languages We speak first in Italian, and he is patient with me then we speak in English, and I am patient with him I discovered Giovanni a few weeks after I d arrived in Rome, thanks to that big Internet caf at the Piazza Barbarini, across the street from that fountain with the sculpture of that sexy merman blowing into his conch shell He Giovanni, that isnot the merman had posted a flier on the bulletin board explaining that a native Italian speaker was seeking a native English speaker for conversational language practice Right beside his appeal was another flier with the same request, word for word identical in every way, right down to the typeface The only difference was the contact information One flier listed an e mail address for somebody named Giovanni the other introduced somebody named Dario But even the home phone number was the same.Using my keen intuitive powers, I e mailed both men at the same time, asking in Italian, Are you perhaps brothers It was Giovanni who wrote back this very provocativo message Even better Twins Yesmuch better Tall, dark and handsome identical twenty five year old twins, as it turned out, with those giant brown liquid center Italian eyes that just unstitch me After meeting the boys in person, I began to wonder if perhaps I should adjust my rule somewhat about remaining celibate this year For instance, perhaps I could remain totally celibate except for keeping a pair of handsome twenty five year old Italian twin brothers as lovers Which was slightly reminiscent of a friend of mine who is vegetarian except for bacon, but nonetheless I was already composing my letter to Penthouse In the flickering, candlelit shadows of the Roman caf, it was impossible to tell whose hands were caressBut, no.No and no.I chopped tvhe fantasy off in mid word This was not my moment to be seeking romance and as day follows night to further complicate my already knotty life This was my moment to look for the kind of healing and peace that can only come from solitude.Anyway, by now, by the middle of November, the shy, studious Giovanni and I have become dear buddies As for Dariothe razzle dazzle swinger brother of the twoI have introduced him to my adorable little Swedish friend Sofie, and how they ve been sharing their evenings in Rome is another kind of Tandem Exchange altogether But Giovanni and I, we only talk Well, we eat and we talk We have been eating and talking for many pleasant weeks now, sharing pizzas and gentle grammatical corrections, and tonight has been no exception A lovely evening of new idioms and fresh mozzarella.Now it is midnight and foggy, and Giovanni is walking me home to my apartment through these back streets of Rome, which meander organically around the ancient buildings like bayou streams snaking around shadowy clumps of cypress groves Now we are at my door We face each other He gives me a warm hug This is an improvement for the first few weeks, he would only shake my hand I think if I were to stay in Italy for another three years, he might actually get up the juice to kiss me On the other hand, he might just kiss me right now, tonight, right here by my door there s still a chance I mean we re pressed up against each other s bodies beneath this moonlight and of course it would be a terrible mistake but it s still such a wonderful possibility that he might actually do it right now that he might just bend down and and Nope.He separates himself from the embrace.Good night, my dear Liz, he says. Buona notte, caro mio, I reply.I walk up the stairs to my fourth floor apartment, all alone I let myself into my tiny little studio, all alone I shut the door behind me Another solitary bedtime in Rome Another long night s sleep ahead of me, with nobody and nothing in my bed except a pile of Italian phrasebooks and dictionaries.I am alone, I am all alone, I am completely alone.Grasping this reality, I let go of my bag, drop to my knees and press my forehead against the floor There, I offer up to the universe a fervent prayer of thanks.First in English.Then in Italian.And thenjust to get the point acrossin Sanskrit.2And since I am already down there in supplication on the floor, let me hold that position as I reach back in time three years earlier to the moment when this entire story begana moment which also found me in this exact same posture on my knees, on a floor, praying.Everything else about the three years ago scene was different, though That time, I was not in Rome but in the upstairs bathroom of the big house in the suburbs of New York which I d recently purchased with my husband It was a cold November, around three o clock in the morning My husband was sleeping in our bed I was hiding in the bathroom for something like the forty seventh consecutive night, andjust as during all those nights beforeI was sobbing Sobbing so hard, in fact, that a great lake of tears and snot was spreading before me on the bathroom tiles, a veritable Lake Inferior if you will of all my shame and fear and confusion and grief. I don t want to be married any.I was trying so hard not to know this, but the truth kept insisting itself to me. I don t want to be married any I don t want to live in this big house I don t want to have a baby.But I was supposed to want to have a baby I was thirty one years old My husband and Iwho had been together for eight years, married for sixhad built our entire life around the common expectation that, after passing the doddering old age of thirty, I would want to settle down and have children By then, we mutually anticipated, I would have grown weary of traveling and would be happy to live in a big, busy household full of children and homemade quilts, with a garden in the backyard and a cozy stew bubbling on the stovetop The fact that this was a fairly accurate portrait of my own mother is a quick indicator of how difficult it once was for me to tell the difference between myself and the powerful woman who had raised me But I didn tas I was appalled to be finding outwant any of these things Instead, as my twenties had come to a close, that deadline of THIRTY had loomed over me like a death sentence, and I discovered that I did not want to be pregnant I kept waiting to want to have a baby, but it didnt happen And I know what it feels like to want something, believe me I well know what desire feels like But it wasn t there Moreover, I couldn t stop thinking about what my sister had said to me once, as she was breast feeding her firstborn Having a baby is like getting a tattoo on your face You really need to be certain it s what you want before you commit How could I turn back now, though Everything was in place This was supposed to be the year In fact, we d been trying to get pregnant for a few months already But nothing had happened aside from the fact thatin an almost sarcastic mockery of pregnancyI was experiencing psychosomatic morning sickness, nervously throwing up my breakfast every day And every month when I got my period I would find myself whispering furtively in the bathroom Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you for giving me one month to live Starred Review. Gilbert The Last American Man grafts the structure of romantic fiction upon the inquiries of reporting in this sprawling yet methodical travelogue of soul searching and self discovery Plagued with despair after a nasty divorce, the author, in her early 30s, divides a year equally among three dissimilar countries, exploring her competing urges for earthly delights and divine transcendence First, pleasure savoring Italy s buffet of delights the world s best pizza, free flowing wine and dashing conversation partners Gilbert consumes la dolce vita as spiritual succor I came to Italy pinched and thin, she writes, but soon fills out in waist and soul Then, prayer and ascetic rigor seeking communion with the divine at a sacred ashram in India, Gilbert emulates the ways of yogis in grueling hours of meditation, struggling to still her churning mind Finally, a balancing act in Bali, where Gilbert tries for equipoise betwixt and between realms, studies with a merry medicine man and plunges into a charged love affair Sustaining a chatty, conspiratorial tone, Gilbert fully engages readers in the year s cultural and emotional tapestry conveying rapture with infectious brio, recalling anguish with touching candor as she details her exotic tableau with history, anecdote and impression Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.
