by | Read by William Murray

Contemporary Culture • 2 hrs. • Abridged • © 2003

Writer William Murray, thoroughly American but Italian born and sometimes bred, takes the listener on a walk through Rome, giving a guide and history, and occasionally a memoir of his own life or a remembrance of his accomplished family. Urbane and civilized in the fullest senses, he meanders but is never lost; his know-ledge of the city and its history are both deep and at his fingertips. This is guidebook enough that at times we wish for a map, but it's more a love letter than a Frommer's. Murray's voice is scratchily old but not unpleasant; his patent love of Rome gives the book a dimension a different reader could not provide. W.M.
