Staff Recommendation: Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi

This book explores the themes of art and infatuation, and is uniquely composed of two raw, quirky novellas whose main character may or may not be the same man. In the first story, a cynical London journalist falls into an intoxicating romance in Venice. In the second story, he is in Varanasi and becomes so enraptured by the squalor and beauty that he decides to stay.
