Rate this:
Venturing beyond St. Mark's Place, the Doges Palace, the Rialto Bridge and all across the still but deadly waters of the lagoon, stories from writers from all corners of the globe evoke the magic, the decay and the beauty and despair of a city that has always fascinated its hordes of visitors. A dizzy waltz of sun and noir between the countless bridges, gondolas and historical landmarks will mean you will never think of Venice in the same way again.

Excellent collection of short stories for those who might like dark fiction. People who are looking at this to read should really understand the Noir part rather than expect romanticized Venice. The best part I liked is the story-telling that doesn't make up self-destructive characters to create drama or tragedy. This has been a serious problem in contemporary literature, especially from the US and the sole exception in the collection demonstrates this. Recommended.
