Let Christine V. Courtney take you on a stroll over bridges and under cloisters, following Venetian locals and visitors as they pass through centuries. These verses capture the spirit and soul of the City of Water - a city so full of poetry itself. Courtney's pen weaves together fine threads of past and present, fact and fiction, into a rich tapestry of images, a Carne Vale of characters: artists, muses and mariners alike. Venetian Voices is a book to cherish, and to inflame our love affair with Venice.
'A prize listener for the distinctive inflection of word and voice, Courtney has defined atmospheres, historical ambiances, striking personalities with the confident brushstrokes of a master painter.' - Valerio de Scarpis
