Lisa Cirieco, Know-it-all passport: A highly recommended read. Giggles guaranteed throughout! Paradise (Apparently) will open your eyes to the cultural differences here. Flo describes painful situations in a funny, entertaining, and humoristic way. I was able to identify with these stories as if I witnessed them in person. Paradise (Apparently) will open your eyes to the cultural differences here.

Andrea Rusch, journalist (The New Stork Times): Unabashed, Flo Regina recounts her various confrontations with cultural diversity. Her honest approach allows us to reflect deeply upon our own unconscious acts of intolerance.    

Alessandra Ressa, journalist (Il Piccolo): A great first work, a hilarious treatise on the bitter-sweet life of a southern Italian mother in "almost perfect” Switzerland.
