This is the definitive book for managing an incurable passion for a decaying waterlogged village Whether you. I smelled trouble when the author first addressed me as “gentle reader” No real surprise I suppose since author Judith Martin is none other than Miss Manners Herself but Dorothy Parker who used the term decades ago she ain’t What I hoped would offer charming witty acerbic brittle insight into a city that I and most everyone else find irresistible was uickly undone by an oh so aloof self adulatory style that made me want to toss Madame Manners along with her sorry pretensions into the Grand Canal There were a few amusing anecdotes here and there but nothing new given the myriad of volumes on the subject Although her tongue may be planted firmly in cheek in among other things crediting not a historian but a cicerone thank you the author should stick to proper usage of fish knives and oyster plates and leave La Serenissima to the pros Far better choices are John Julius Norwich’s definitive A History of Venice or Frédéric Vitoux’s delicious Venice The Art of Living

No Vulgar Hotel The Desire and Pursuit of VeniceAlready have a raging case of Venetophilia or are among the fifteen million people who yearly put themselves. I really enjoyed this but also spent about 8 weeks in Venice I have a hard time imagining it would be that interesting to someone who doesn't have the stirring of venetophilia themselves Humorously written and wide sweeping you'll gain a whole new view not only of the city but those who have fallen hopelessly in love with it
