Praise for The City of Falling Angels by John Berendt. As refreshing as a chilly Bellini on a humid afternoon, The City of Falling Angels captures Venice’s inhabitants and intrigues through a series of sharp, well-defined sketches and explores the amusing stink of its bureaucratic corruption, high society skirmishes and daring artistic feats. Berendt immerses us deeply in the city’s culture and we emerge sputtering and thrilled.

Fallen Angels also awakens your awareness. The reader clearly begins to see that we all have choice. We have the choice to be the same as everyone; to live in mediocrity; to be swallowed by the "war" of mediocrity and do what this reality says we should do, and to never acknowledge our difference. William Walsh, amazing author of our time! Thank you Mr. Walsh for writing this amazing book, and taking your readers to a place where they begin to acknowledge what they have always known: infinite being, infinite power, unstoppable force. Thank you for inspiring me, and thank you for changing my life!

Taking the fire that destroyed the Fenice theatre in 1996 as his starting point, John Berendt creates a unique and unforgettable portrait of Venice and its extraordinary inhabitants. Beneath the exquisite facade of the world's most beautiful historic city, scandal, corruption and venality are rampant, and John Berendt is a master at seeking them out. Ezra Pound and his mistress, Olga; poet Mario Stefani; the Rat Man of Treviso; or Mario Moro - self-styled carabiniere, fireman, soldier or airman, depending on the day of the week.
