Ask Me if I'm Happy

By Kimberly Menozzi

Literary fiction, Romance | Paperback, eBook


Sometimes the simplest questions are the hardest ones to ask. Emily Miller is forced to spend a day in Bologna when she'd rather be catching her flight to the U.S. Determined to put ten years in Italy and her marriage behind her, she wants nothing to do with anything — or anyone — Italian ever again. For Davide Magnani, chivalry isn't yet dead. He accompanies Emily to Milan, if only to reassure himself of her safe arrival. The following morning, he's stunned to realize he's fallen in love with someone he's only known for twenty-four hours — and it seems that she feels the same way. One year later, Emily and Davide reunite. As their relationship strengthens, unforeseen events reveal deeper, troubling connections all around, which drive Emily away from the first man she's ever really trusted. Can she forgive the lies she's been told, or the truths which have been hidden from her? And how can Davide prove to her, once and for all, that Italy is precisely where she needs to be?

An aspiring writer from the age of eight, I began writing my first stories instead of paying attention in school. While my grades might have suffered, my imagination seldom did. I even managed to keep most of my stories together for years, then lost them after a move when I left a trunk full of papers behind. (I'd truly meant to go back and get them, but circumstances prevented me from doing so.) So, I started over again. And I lost those, too. After a trip to England in 2002, I began work on A Marginal Life (Well-Lived), inspired by the music of Jarvis Cocker and Pulp. The novel was completed in 2003, and I plan major rewrites of the manuscript with hopes of publication sometime in the future. Also in 2003, I met and fell in love with an Italian accountant named Alessandro. I married him in 2004. This necessitated my arrival in Italy and I have lived here ever since. Not long after I started working for language schools and writing blog entries for my family in the US to read, new story ideas began to develop. Finally, in 2007, I began work on a new project, inspired by my love/hate relationship with my new home. The novel Ask Me if I'm Happy was completed in 2009. Ask Me if I'm Happy was first released November 15th, 2010 in the UK, and was re-released in the US on May 31st, 2011. Also in May of 2011, I published the novella "Alternate Rialto", a prequel to Ask Me if I'm Happy. I released my latest novel, 27 Stages, in April of 2013. On June 8th, 2013, 27 Stages was included in Podium Cafe's 101 on Tour 100 Books.
