Read This: How to Love an American Man

I just finished a terrific book and I want to recommend it here. It’s called How to Love an American Man by Kristine Gasbarre. I first found out about this book because I had heard rumors that it was being turned into a movie and big-name actresses were fighting for the lead role. I love books, celebrities, and celebrity gossip, so all of these things caught my attention. Interestingly enough, I soon found out that the book’s author is from the same town as one of my best friends. They know each other well. Small world, right? I decided to check the book out and I’m really glad out I did. 

The story focuses on Krissy, a twenty-something who has lived and worked in Italy and New York City and has returned home to small-town Pennsylvania because of the death of her beloved grandfather. Krissy spends a lot of time with her grandmother, helping her cope with her husband (Krissy’s grandfather’s) death and talking with her about relationships. Krissy’s grandparents were married for sixty years, so there’s a lot to learn.

The book reads like an entertaining novel, but it’s full of really interesting philosophies and thoughts from Krissy’s grandma (an old-school, Italian matriarch) about love and relationships. It’s also got plenty of stories about Krissy’s relationships (both old and blossoming new ones). The book gives twenty-somethings plenty to think about, and it’s especially great if you have/had a great connection with your own grandparents.

I love reading and writing about relationships and love, so this book was right up my alley. If you’re the same way, I think you’d enjoy it. Even if you’re not necessarily into analyzing relationships, it’s an interesting and helpful read for anyone who’s ever been in love (or hopes to find love some day). I’d definitely recommend it. Here’s a link if you want to buy a copy for yourself or for a holiday a present. It’s a quick read, but certainly a good one. Have you read the book? What did you think?
