Product Details


"A bella laugh…Wonderfully funny perspective. No Dickensian outrage is to be found in these pages, no close to Toquevillian analysis; Ciao, America! is fun from first page to last, pure and simple."
-Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post

"Severignini is a master in the vein of Bill Bryson…Ciao, America! is a sardonic tale of cultural bewilderment, an incisive peek into the mundane obsessions of our American existence that makes the commonplace seem not only insane but extremely funny."
Publishers Weekly

"A delightful read, full of wonderful anecdotes that capture the eye-opening absurdity of life in the United States."
Chicago Tribune

"Witty…Whatever you have taken for granted in America is what Severignini observes with the freshness and charm of the outsider, here for an extended visit. He gives us back ourselves– with our manners and mores and even the fine print on our No Parking signs–in a shining mirror."
Philadelphia Weekly Press
