You’ve been to Venice, and loved it, or you’re going soon, and you’re thinking that what you need is to sample, or wallow in, some novels and films set in this most fascinating and varied of cities. Well, this is the book for you. It begins with a darn comprehensive list of the novels that have been set in Venice, followed by my reviews of the ones that I’ve read, which number well over 100. Then there are my reviews of 50-odd films that have set in Venice, including TV films and series. Here, for the sake of completeness, I’ve also reported on some films I’ve only heard or read about. Both sections are all over the place, genre-wise. The books include science fiction, books for young adults and crime novels, and the films include porn and giallo. It’s all here! This is a collected, reformatted, amended, and portable version of the Venice-related pages on my website – fictionalcities.com.
