Florence a Delicate Casby David Leavitt
Synopses & Reviews
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.
The author writes, "Florence is the only European City I can think of whose most famous citizens, at least in the last 150 yers or so, have all been foreigners". This narrative considers the appeal of Florence to figures as diverse as Tchaikovsky, Mary McCarthy and Henry Labouchere.
