Publisher Comments:

A New York Times Notable Book

In this deeply personal and learned labor of love, R.W.B. Lewis provides a new look at the glories of Florence, the smallish Tuscan city which has been a prime source for modern Western culture and which has also been his second home for fifty years. With a scholar's eye and a lover's passion, he invites us to share his vision of a city and the way of life it has engendered and inspired.

Synopsis:

In this deeply personal and learned labor of love, the acclaimed chronicler of such great American cosmopolitans as Edith Wharton and Henry James, provides a new look at the glories of Florence, the smallish Tuscan city that has been a prime source for modern Western culture and has also been his second home for the past 50 years. "A treasurable guide".--Publishers Weekly. Photos.
