Synopsis

'Glittering, entertaining' Sunday Times

A beguiling portrait of the city of Venice from the bestselling author of the classic true crime Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

Beneath the exquisite facade of the world's most beautiful historic city, scandal, corruption and venality are rampant. Venice and its eccentric locals come to life in the words of exquisite storyteller, John Berendt. Ezra Pound and his mistress, Olga; poet Mario Stefani; the Rat Man of Treviso; or Mario Moro - self-styled carabiniere, fireman, soldier or airman, depending on the day of the week.

City of Falling Angels is a mischievous, charming and compelling portrait of a beguiling city and its people.
