Rome's notoriously crowded BUS 64 crawls from the Vatican, through the historic center, to Stazione Termini... Crammed inside are the priest, butcher, tourist, gypsy, secretary, business tycoon, homeless schizophrenic, African immigrant... Teeming with the thoughts, dreams and passions of modern Romans, and the sights, sounds, and smells of the Eternal City, the 49 stories in BUS 64 continually shift gears between elegy, satire, whimsy, shocking realism, fable, farce and more... each style riveting in its quite different way. As the loaded bus plods on, readers will catch whiffs of authors ranging from Boccaccio to Steinbeck, Henry Miller to Hans Christian Andersen... all fused in a mature literary voice all its own. Filled with wit and acute perceptions - emotional, psychological, physical, and spiritual - this high-spirited portrait of modern Rome has got edge, heart, guts, and verbal artistry. Above all, it has the FEEL of Rome. If you know and love Rome, BUS 64 will delight you. And if you haven't been there, a ride through this book is almost as good as a visit!
