'A perfect read for a Mediterannean beach' Daily Telegraph

When Chris travelled from Sydney to Dublin, he never dreamed his life was about to change forever. There he meets Daniela - one L, smile as you say it to pronounce it correctly - and it's amore at first sight. Before he can say si, he's uprooted to follow her to her sun-kissed hometown of Andrano, Puglia, tucked in the heel of southern Italy.

The whitewashed houses, olive groves and cobblestone lanes are beautiful, but soon Chris is getting to grips with everyday Italian life. There's infuriating bureaucracy, an anarchic road system and - biggest challenge of all - Daniela's mamma, who's determined to convert him to the Catholic faith and build an extension on her house where the couple might live la dolce vita.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A perfect read for a Mediterranean beach... Genuinely funny. * Daily Telegraph *
Keeps you turning pages long into the night * Real Travel *
Gets right under Italy's skin. Few books about living in foreign climes are written as entertainingly, beautifully or romantically. * Sydney Morning Herald *
An intriguing book, very well written, well structured, entertaining and sometimes even challenging... a delightful and often humorous account of the author's evolving relationship with Italy as he comes to grips with everyday reality there... anecdotes provide both humour and vivid images of Italians and Italian life. -- Judges of the Grollo Ruzzene Foundation Prize
Harrison manages to get right under Italy's skin without stereotyping the people he meets and situations he finds himself in... Many have written books about their experiences living in foreign climes but few have done it as entertainingly, beautifully and - surprisingly - romantically as Harrison does here. * Sydney Morning Herald & Melbourne Age *
This is a funny and touching tale about the cultural divide with a sweet and passionate love story at its heart. Enjoy Head Over Heel and its taste of la dolce vita * The Courier Mail *
Dramatic, sensual and affectionately amusing, Head Over Heel is as good as a holiday. -- John Bell, The Bell Shakespeare Company
