An American in Venice
Published by Diogenes as Eine Amerikanerin in Venedig
Original Title: Eine Amerikanerin in Venedig
We find ourselves in the apartment of Donna Leon. She observes her neighbours, not only through the window, but also straight through the walls; mostly, however, she exchanges views with them directly. In this way, she is not only initiated into the secrets of the Italian kitchen and into their family life, but is also a witness of many Italian shortcomings, which she combats as if she were Commissario Brunetti in person.
