Five Faves: Venice Books


It is Carnival in Venice this week, so here is a short list of my favorite Venice books:
I keep a list of books set in or about Venice. Any suggestions? What are your favorites?

There are times when a full-sized book list is just too much; when the Top 100, a Big Read, or all the Prize winners seem like too daunting an effort. That's when a short little list of books grouped by theme may be just the ticket.

Inspired by Nancy Pearl's "Companion Reads" chapter in Book Lust – themed clusters of books on subjects as diverse as Bigfoot and Vietnam – I decided to start occasionally posting lists of five books grouped by topic or theme. I call these posts my Five Faves.

Feel free to grab the button and play along.  Use today's theme or come up with your own.  If you post about it, please link back to here and leave the link to your post in a comment.  If you want to participate but don't have a blog or don't feel like posting, please share your list in a comment.

Reading about Venice is one of my things! I have never read an Erica Jong book but it's never too late to start :)

Death in Venice is a masterpiece--I've read it at least 3 times. It made me a Mann fan for the longest time, but nothing else Mann wrote comes close to being as good.

I also like the Donna Leon mystery series set in Venice. I try to read 1-2 per year.
