The sublime city of Venice has long offered inspiration to the world's storytellers.
This anthology gathers a dazzling variety of stories with Venetian settings, including Daphne du Maurier's haunting 'Don't Look Now', Anthony Trollope's wartime romance 'The Last Austrian Who Left Venice', Vernon Lee's spine-chilling 'A Wicked Voice', and a scene from 'The Wings of the Dove', Henry James's tale of passion and betrayal in a Gothic palazzo on the Grand Canal.

The famed Venetian adventurer Giacomo Casanova weighs in with escapades from his notorious 'Memoirs', alongside enthralling selections by Baron Corvo, Marcel Proust, Camillo Boito, and Jeanette Winterson. In its multifaceted portrait of La Serenissima, 'Venice Stories' showcases a lineup of literary classics worthy of the magnificent city they celebrate.
