About the Author

Judith Martin, born a perfect lady in an imperfect society, is the author of the "Miss Manners" columns and best-selling books, two novels, and a travel book on Venice. She and her husband live in Washington, DC. Eric Denker is a Senior Lecturer in the Education Department of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.


According to Miss Manners herself, it is entirely appropriate to whoop it up for Venice. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

"Do yourself a courtesy and read this revelation about the Jewel of the Adriatic." -- P. J. O'Rourke
"Perfect for a swift, semi-intellectual overview of Venice that goes several steps deeper than the average tourist guide." -- Publishers Weekly
"Interesting, frequently enlightening, and always amusing." -- Library Journal
"Reading her book, with its captivating mini-histories of Venetian literary salons, families of note and artists in residence, is like attending a gossipy Continental dinner party in which Martin not only plays the hostess but moonlights as various guests...Not only does Martin know what she likes, she knows how to serve it." -- Pamela Paul - New York Times Book Review
"In the spirit of Henry James...Fans of Miss Manners' high comic style will find much to amuse them in this idiosyncratic slice of prosciutto on wry." -- Amanda Heller - Boston Sunday Globe
