Francine Prose is the author of twenty works of fiction. Her novel A Changed Man won the Dayton Literary Peace Prize, and Blue Angel was a finalist for the National Book Award. Her most recent works of nonfiction include the highly acclaimed Anne Frank: The Book, The Life, The Afterlife, and the New York Times bestseller Reading Like a Writer.
Francine Prose might well find herself on one of those lists of oddly appropriate congruency between name and occupation.

That characteristic pervades her treasurably evocative, literary travel memoir Sicilian Odyssey-part of the ongoing National Geographic Directions Series.
