One of Italys brightest literary lights reinvents travel writing with a seductive, intoxicating celebration of the magical saltwater city.Venice is a fish, writes Tiziano Scarpa. Its like a vast sole stretched out against the deep. How did this marvelous beast make its way up the Adriatic and fetch up here, of all places? Paying homage to his native city in a lyrical and evocative style, he guides readers down tiny alleys, over bridges, and through squares, daring us to lose ourselves, forget the guidebooks, and experience Venice as Venetians do.Venice Is a Fish provides no hotel ratings or museum hours.

Instead, in a delightful initiation, Scarpa tells us how to balance while standing on a gondola- where lovers will find the best secret hiding places- the finer points of etiquette and navigation during an agua alta- and how best to defend ourselves from the pitiless beauty of one of the worlds most stimulating cities. Open Venice Is a Fish, and Scarpas magnificent images, secret history, and hidden lore unfold like a treasure map of the senses.
