Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Delving into the daily life of a city that is in so many ways larger than life, Paul Hofmann steers us beyond the tourist board, revealing a fetish for Vatican gossip, the idiosyncrasies of the gattare (cat women who care for the city's stray cats), and the vagaries of the ever-volatile Roman government. As he winds through Rome's ancient streets, we listen with him to the voices of the city, past and present, and we discover with him the intricacies and the beauty of Italy's finest city.

About the Author

Paul Hofmann was for many years chief of The New York Times bureau in Rome. He is the author of many books, including the highly acclaimed Cento Citta, That Fine Italian Hand, and Umbria. He lives in Rome.
