Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A continuation of the excellent and widely acclaimed series of travel monographs begun by Edmund White in "The Flaneur" and continued by Peter Carey in "30 Days In Sydney". A lively and affectionate account of expatriate life in the city of Florence, from the 1850s onwards.

Synopsis:
