Michael Tucker - racounteur

Recently read two memoirs by Tucker, the actor from stage and LA Law.

Living in a Foreign Language recounts he and his wife's purchase of a house in Umbria as they look at their next stage of life. Family Meals tells the tale the transitition to Umbria and NYC as his mother-in-law needs more and more help as she slips away.

The stories are well told and flow lightly. I was particularly impressed with his handling of his mother-in-law's personality and his wife's dealing with the past and the future.
