His reflections are hampered, however, by a hectic work schedule in Verona, Macerata and Rome, by wacky students, by his tendency to nod off, by his fixation with rugby, and by various human beings insensitively invading his personal space. A lively array of characters includes Ham, an outspoken, muscle-bound New Yorker, and Stalwart’s temperamental, unfathomable colleague Lucia, whose fascination with this Englishman appears to go well beyond mere cross-cultural issues…Dominic Stewart has lived in Italy since 1987. He teaches English Language and Italian-English Translation at the University of Macerata, Italy.
