Ackroyd covers an immense amount of ground with verve and elegance" * Independent on Sunday * "Ackroyd tells the story well...where he excels is in his descriptions...he writes beguilingly" * Guardian * "Ackroyd is hugely intelligent and formidably industrious; there can be few people, Venetian or foreign, who know Venice better than he... It is full of good things" * Daily Telegraph * "Elegant... Interweaving psychogeographical investigation with history, picking out defining characteristics which were present from its earliest days" * Scotsman *
