The Golden Bowl: 2018 (Paperback)

UK delivery within 3-4 weeks


Written in March 2018, when Alyson Hallett was poet in residence at Castello di Potentino, this book is a reflection of her time studying the castle and the wild nature of the Golden Bowl- the valley that surrounds Potentino, on the slopes of Monte Amiata, the second highest volcano in Italy. This book is a wonderful observation of Southern Tuscany, a place, people, and the world created there.
