No Vulgar Hotel, The Desire and Pursuit of Venice
by Eric Denker (Contributor) Judith Martin
- 330 PAGES
Judith Martin (AKA Miss Manners) and Professor Denker offer a diverting social history of Venice, with a focus on its many famous personages, in these entertaining essays. The delightful book includes talk of etiquette, history, party-going, the arts, food and drink ("Veneto's prosecco is not just cheaper than champagne but better"), and profiles of extreme Venetophiles from Byron to Hemingway.
