Venice has so enamored husband-and-wife authors Anka Muhlstein (a biographer) and Louis Begley (a novelist) that they have visited it every year of their 30-year marriage. In Venice for Lovers, the enchanted duo pool their authorial talents and create a triptych of a book: Begley contributes an essay on Venice's appearances in the work of Henry James, Marcel Proust, and Thomas Mann, as well as a novella about a young American falling out of love with a woman and in love with charming Venice, while Muhlstein writes a piece about the four restaurants the couple have visited for years, providing "a rich, humorous evocation of Venices̕ draw" (Booklist, in a starred review).
