Some pieces portray private, intimate moments, while others offer views on public, sometimes controversial matters; the tone is sometimes serious, sometimes humorous, sometimes ironic, but always engaging. The panoramic nature of the vignettes is broad in scope, encompassing a variety of subjects rendered in quick, decisive brushstrokes. It is a little like leafing through a photo album of our times and our society while a learned companion seated beside us offers a perceptive running commentary. Magris's wit--at times pungent, at times self-deprecating, always keen--is refreshingly affable. A continuing adventure by the author who has reinvented 'travel literature'."--From front cover flap."@en ;
