Synopsis: Like an expert gondolier, eminent novelist Philippe Sollers guides the reader on an intimate journey through Venice, the city that has enchanted him for more than 50 years. Philippe Sollers is the perfect guide to the soul of Venice as he explores its rich cultural heritage: from Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice to the iconic gondolas that populate the Grand Canal, from Venice’s vibrant role during the Renaissance to Napoleon Bonaparte’s decision to sell the floating city to the Austrians. Artists of all stripes have captured this magical city in their work: Henry James and Simone de Beauvoir, Bellini and Monet, Vivaldi and Wagner. All are featured, along with literary quotes paying homage to the Serenissima, quality images, witty anecdotes, and historical facts. This handsomely illustrated volume is the ultimate invitation to explore the history of this idyllic city. Philippe Sollers has received numerous literary prizes for his works, which include Mysterious Mozart, Writing and Seeing Architecture, Women, Watteau in Venice, A Strange Solitude, Event, and The Park. His biographies include Dante, Picasso, and Casanova.

About the Author: Philippe Sollers is a prominent French writer and critic. In 1960, he founded the avant-garde journal Tel Quel. His publications include more than fifty books of fiction and non-fiction, and many essays and interviews. He has received numerous literary prizes, including the Académie française's prestigious Grand Prix in 1992. His books include Mysterious Mozart, Writing and Seeing Architecture, Women, Watteau in Venice, A Strange Solitude, Event, The Park, and biographies on Dante, Picasso, and Casanova.
