Expat and author.

Katherine Wilson was born and raised in Washington, D.C. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Princeton University, where she studied with Toni Morrison and Peter Sellars. She has lived in Italy for the past nineteen years, working in television, film, and theater. Most recently, she acted in Giuseppe Tornatore’s The Best Offer, with Geoffrey Rush and Donald Sutherland. She lives in Rome with her husband and two children.

In her debut memoir, Only In Naples, Katherine Wilson manages to combine everything I love: food, family, and Italy, with heaping portions of heart and humor. How lucky we are to get these hysterical and wise perceptions filtered through a sincerely loving eye. You'll want to share this book with friends and family over a big bowl of rigatoni alla Genovese.
