‘Rome: The Marvels and the Menace’ – Four Rome Book Reviews in the NYRB

You can blame my postman for me being a little slow on reporting about the excellent Rome-related book reviews in the October 11th issue of the New York Review of Books.

When I happened upon Ingrid Rowland’s review of four books – Rome from the Ground Up; The Seven Hills of Rome: A Geographical Tour of the Eternal City; The Secrets of Rome: Love and Death in the Eternal City; and The Colosseum – I devoured it immediately. Lucky for you, the text of Ms. Rowland’s article is also online.

P.S. Do yourself a favor and get a subscription to The New York Review of Books. There’s always a lot of Rome/Italy coverage and you’ll find plenty of fodder for starting conversations at parties.
