When I left for Sorrento in Italy I had to bring “The Story of San Michele” by Swedish physician Axel Munthe with me. A funny, strange and existential book of memoirs by Munthe. It was first published in 1929 and it became a best-seller in numerous languages and has been republished constantly in the over seven decades since its original release. Munthe spent much of his life on Capri building the Villa San Michele. A magnificent place on Capri you should visit. I will go back for sure. #Sorrento #Capri #AxelMunthe
