Frances Mayes of Hillsborough (“Under the Tuscan Sun,” “Under Magnolia”) writes from Italy that she is finishing a novel to be released by Crown in the spring. When she finishes, she says, “I am leaping into another project, quite different. I’m writing a travel narrative about the little known places in Italy. Yes, they exist! It’s called ‘Someplace in Italy’ and will also by Crown.”
