Spanning a breadth of five decades, this gorgeous foray into the inner lives of two people separated by oceans and life tells the story of the grand love affair of an Italian housekeeper and the long-lost American starlet he loved. Alongside the producer who connected them and his assistant, a story unravels from the glittering cliffs of Italy in the 1960s to present-day Los Angeles. This charming romance will delight you.

Bestselling author Jess Walter has brought the world the national hit The Financial Lives of Poets, and in Beautiful Ruins he returns with a hilarious, sweetly romantic story of a love affair that begins on the Italian coast and is rekindled decades later on the streets of Hollywood. With honesty, wit, and timelessness, he weaves a tale of intricate, unforgettable characters.

Fall in love with this absolute masterpiece and you'll find yourself wondering if it's ever truly too late for true love....

Beautiful setting and story. Multiple pov and time frames can sometimes be confusing, but that was not the case in the this story. I would recommend this to anyone interested in Italy or Hollywood.


I love a book that makes me laugh out loud!


As an audiobook, this is a little confusing and slightly boring.
