Paul Morand's delightful and typically unconventional autobiography is far from being yet another account of a writer's life and times; instead it is an impressionistic, highly poetic evocation of certain scenes among his rich and varied encounters and experience, filtered through the one constant in his life-the one place, in all its myriad guises, to which he would always return and with which he never lost faith-Venice.
Paul Morand was born in Paris in 1888 and died there in 1976. In a long and busy life he was a diplomat (serving in London, Rome, Berne and Bucharest), writer, poet, traveller, socialite (married to the Romanian princess Helene Soutzo), friend of Proust, Giraudoux and Malraux, and member of the Academie Francaise.
