ROMAN FOUNTAIN

The funeral of Pope Pius XI took Hugh Walpole to Rome as official commentator for an American newspaper. And the record of that visit is here given, with various ramifications. But the greater part of the book is made up of random memories of previous trips to Rome, of the incidents and the personalities that made an impression, of the thoughts to which they gave rise. Autobiographical, philosophical, and dependably good craftsmanship.
