'A beautiful meditation on the writer's relocation from bustling London to bucolic Florence. It reminded me why I cherish slow living in southern Europe' (Taiye Selasi, Guardian) Chosen as Book of the Year by Random Jottings Made redundant from her job, Kamin Mohammadi flees the bleak streets of London for a friend's sun-dappled apartment in Florence. There, among the cobbled streets, the bustling, vibrant markets and the majestic palazzos, she finds a new lease of life, and a new way to live it. At once lyrical and practical, Bella Figura shows us how to make every aspect of life as beautiful as it can be. From how to choose the perfectly ripe tomato to how to walk down the street in style, Kamin Mohammadi explores the intricate nuances of Italian culture, and sets down a simple guide to a better, more elegant - and ultimately more satisfying - life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A beautiful meditation on the writer's relocation from bustling London to bucolic Florence. It reminded me why I cherish slow living in southern Europe -- Taiye Selasi * Guardian *
This book is my ideal type of armchair travel: immersive, insightful, seductive. In Bella Figura, Kamin Mohammadi takes us to the year in Florence that changed her life, and gives us the tools to bring the grace of the Italian lifestyle to our own lives. It's a reminder to slow down, look around, taste, listen, and to open ourselves to new possibilities -- Stephanie Danler, author of Sweetbitter
Easy-to-read and punctuated with simple recipes, the book's lively narrative bounces you from page to page ... Shows you how to embrace la bella figura wherever you are * Italia *
A charming hybrid of self-help and memoir * Publishers Weekly *
A down-to-earth modern-day fairy tale for the world-weary * Kirkus *
