Read in March, 2007

John Berendt's book about Venice, done in the same character study style that "Mindnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" was.

While this didn't suck me in as much as "Midnight," it's still an absolutely delightful read, with as much color and insight as his first. My one complaint is that there were a lot more people, so I got them confused rather frequently (though he did anticipate this and included an index of people, which helped some.)

This book solidifies the acclaim Berendt received for his first novel, and shows it was no one time thing. I wish that he could write a book about every city. I'd read all of them.
