Congratulations to the author (Jordan Lancaster) who has filled an important gap with her cultural history of Naples! Books about Rome, Venice and Florence are legion but Naples, until now, has been sadly under-represented. This well-researched yet slender volume is a must-have for Italophiles everywhere. The fascinating story of this city of great contrasts will draw you in to a world of mythical and historical figures each playing a part against the magnificent backdrop of a menacing volcano.
