Another re-read. If you liked Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, then you will find this story wrapped around the fire in Venice's opera house and its subsequent rebuilding equally as engaging.
However, my favorite part of the audio edition was the interview with John Berendt that was included at the end of the recording.
I can't wait for John Berendt's next book. I am amazed at his talent as interviewer to extract information for those he meets and his ability to weave diverse stories into a cohesive whole.
