Acerca de


'The story of the Fenice fire and its aftermath is exceptionally interesting, the cast of characters is suitably various and flamboyant, and Berendt's prose is precise, evocative and witty' -- Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post 20050918 'An engaging journey in which the author navigates Venice's shadowy politics, its tangled bureaucracy and its elegant high-society nightlife with a discerning, sanguine touch. Berendt does great justice to an exalted city that has rightly fascinated the likes of Henry James, Robert Browning and many filmmakers throughout the world ... In Berendt's capable hands, the city has never seemed more colorful, perplexing and alluring.' -- Kirkus Reviews 20050918 'Berendt has delivered an intriguing mosaic of modern life in Venice, which makes for first-rate travel writing' -- Publishers Weekly 20050918 'The City of Falling Angels -- one of the longest-awaited literary encores in recent times -- strikes many of the same notes as "Midnight". It, too, is set in one of history's blessed backwaters, a place of crumbling mansions and rococo intrigue. And it, too, teems with a diverse cast of aristocrats and lowlifes.' -- Adam Goodheart, New York Times Book Review 20050921 'An urbane, beautifully fashioned book with much exotic charm... Once again, Mr Berendt makes erudite, inquisitive, nicely sceptical company as he leads the reader through the shadows of what was heretofore better known as a tourist attraction.' -- Janet Maslin, New York Times 20050922 'Thrilling and immediate, a compelling tapestry of eye-witness accounts.' -- Independent on Sunday 20050925 'Mr. Berendt has breathed deeply the air of the city of falling angels ... splendidly entertaining.' -- The Economist 20050925 'He delivers an urbane, beautifully fashioned book with much exotic charm ... erudite, inquisitive, nicely sceptical company' -- Jane Maslin, International Herald Tribune 20050925 'a cultured man, a persistent journalist and a vivid writer ... a worthy addition to the vast literature about Venice.' -- Independent 20051007 'With his sharp eyes and sharp pen, he begins to penetrate the city's own shimmering mask.' -- Scotsman 20051015 'With his keen eye, laconic prose, and almost father-cofessor-like ability to extract self-incriminating admissions from his various interviewees, Berendt is the most urbane and entertaining guides through Venice's social labyrinth.' -- Literary Review 20051015 'Berendt tells his stories fluently, and there are some well-timed surprises and jokes.' -- Times Literary Supplement 20051015 'Berendt has also been seduced by Venice and captured the calm quirkiness beneath the beauty.' -- Alan Whicker, Sunday Express 20051204
