KIRKUS REVIEW

The great Victorian novelist as an admiring and astute tourist. The journey actually begins in France and progresses in leisurely fashion to Genoa, Parma, Venice, Verona, Rome, Naples and Florence with Dickens recording his reactions to the Piazza San Marco, the Colosseum, Vesuvius, etc. as well as the sleepy boatmen, the clamorous peasant women, the friars and the beggars of sunny Italy.
