Venice, Jan Morris
5 Jan Morris Venice
Faber and Faber 231812 Great Britain 1993 0571168973 / 9780571168972 Softcover Good Condition Often hailed as one of the best travel books ever written, Venice is neither a guide nor a history book, but a beautifully written immersion in Venetian life and character, set against the background of the city's past. Analysing the particular temperament of Venetians, as well as its waterways, its architecture, its bridges, its tourists, its curiosities, its smells, sounds, lights and colours, there is scarcely a corner of Venice that Jan Morris has not investigated and brought vividly to life. Jan Morris first visited the city of Venice as young James Morris, during World War II. As she writes in the introduction, 'it is Venice seen through a particular pair of eyes at a particular moment - young eyes at that, responsive above all to the stimuli of youth.' Venice is an impassioned work on this magnificent but often maddening city. Jan Morris's collection of travel writing and reportage spans over five decades and includes such titles as Sydney, Coronation Everest, Hong Kong, Spain and Manhattan '45. Since its first publication, Venice has appeared in many editions, won the W.H. Heinemann award and become an international bestseller. 320 pages. Foxing to endpapers and page edges.

Delizia! The Epic Story of the Italians and Their Food, John Dickie
7 John Dickie Delizia! The Epic Story of the Italians and Their Food
Sceptre 227461 Great Britain 2007 034089640X / 9780340896402 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition Everyone loves Italian food. But how did the Italians come to eat so well? The advertising industry tells us the answer lies in the vineyards and olive groves of Tuscany - among sun-weathered peasants, and mammas serving pasta under the pergola. Yet this nostalgic fantasy has little to do with the real history of Italian cuisine. Because Italian food is city food. And telling its story means telling the story of the Italians as a people of city dwellers. For a thousand years, Italy's cities have been magnets for everything that makes for great eating: ingredients, talent, money, and power. In "Delizia!" the author of the acclaimed "Cosa Nostra" takes a revelatory historical journey through the flavours of Italy's cities. From the bustle of Medieval Milan, to the bombast of Fascist Rome; from the pleasure gardens of Renaissance Ferrara, to the putrid alleyways of nineteenth-century Naples. In rich slices of urban life, "Delizia!" shows how violence and intrigue, as well as taste and creativity, went to make the world's favourite cuisine. With its mix of vivid story-telling, ground-breaking research and shrewd analysis, John Dickie's "Delizia!" is as appetising as the dishes it describes. 404 pages. Light tanning to page edges.

Michelin 231034 France 2007 2067123491 / 9782067123496 Softcover Near Fine Condition Venice is a city where waterfront palaces rub shoulders with modest houses, where housewives sit chatting as they hang their laundry in elegant medieval campos, where sun-bathing is done from your rooftop altana and your bus to work has an outboard engine. Discover an ancient and fiercely independent culture, whose swirling life is echoed in the circling flocks of pigeons of the Piazza San Marco. The Michelin Green Guide is the authority on Venice today and the forces of nature and society that have shaped it. Michelin's local writers have walked, water taxied, visited, slept, shopped and eaten through every tour, sight, hotel, restaurant, boutique, café and venue in this guide. Where they have stepped, you won't put a foot wrong.

Hachette 231647 Australia 2009 0733623336 / 9780733623332 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition The concluding part of Penelope Green's trilogy of memoirs about her life in Italy. After living in Rome and Naples, Penny and her Italian partner, Alfonso, move to the small and beautiful island of Procida in the Gulf of Naples, across the bay from Capri. Penny and Alfonso want a change of scene and decide to accept the challenge set by Enzo, the owner of the island's Bar Capriccio, who tells them that young couples come to Procida, "but not many last". Adapting to life in the small community, where many locals are wary of newcomers and the conveniences of the city are more than an hour's ferry trip away is hard for Penny, and even more so when Alfonso has to leave for three months to tour with his band. But with her trademark optimism and determination, Penny sets her own goal. She is going to ask her Procidian neighbours to teach her to cook. Over kitchen tables, in cafes and sharing family meals under vine-covered pergolas, Penny learns the art of Italian cooking, and enters into the lives of people on the island as friendships form and stories are traded. 305 pages.
