A Sentimental Journey from the Source to the Black SeaFSG Classics
Claudio Magris; Translated from the Italian by Patrick Creagh
Farrar, Straus and Giroux
In this acclaimed international bestseller, Claudio Magris tracks the Danube River, setting his finger on the pulse of Central Europe, the crucible of a culture that draws on influences of East and West, Christianity and Islam. In each town he raises the ghosts that inhabit the houses and monuments, from Ovid and Marcus Aurelius to Kafka and Canetti, in "a fascinating blend of anecdote and history" (San Francisco Examiner).
