|Subject: Re: New "True Crime" Book on Venice|
Margaret & Leslie recently wrote about "The City of Falling Angels", a new book by John Berendt.
Actually, the book is based around the huge and disastrous fire that destroyed La Fenice, the opera house of Venice, in 1996. And, though based on a real event, it is a novel, so placing it in the True Crime section is a mistake.
I understand that it is a wonderful book. Pre-publication reviews have been excellent. I already have my copy on order from the Book of the Month Club.
